I’ve been interested in the upcoming romance Upside Down since I first heard of its simple but wacky premise: Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst live in two worlds inverted on top of each other, but fall in love despite the laws of science and gravity keeping them apart. The posters above illustrate it better, as do the first batch of images released courtesy of Bleeding Cool.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he met once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach… a girl named Eve. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grown-up Eve on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back… Not even the law or science!
From the photos, it looks as if Adam is trying to fit into Eve’s world — sort of an In Time thing going on — despite a possible other suitor. There’s a fun whimsy to the images of Jim’s tie floating upside down, etc., but it seems like the movie will also include a commentary on the haves and have-nots.
