New Upside Down Trailer Lands
Jim Sturgess finds love above

Despite what would seem to be a compelling concept, sci-fi romantic drama Upside Down has had a tough path to cinemas. It found release in places like Russia and Poland last year but, despite a trailer more than a year ago, never quite made it here or to the States. That finally seem set to change for those across the pond and a new promo is out via Yahoo. Take a look below. 



Upside Down is set in a solar system where two Earth-like planets exist – the one above a paradise for the wealthy, full of swanky ballrooms and other luxuries, while the other is more loaded with poor folk just trying to get by (think Another Earth meets In Time). While the parallel planets largely co-exist peacefully, a spate of robberies on the upper Earth committed by those below mean that border controls tighten.

But that’s no barrier to Adam (Sturgess) who long ago fell for Eden (Dunst) and who will do anything to see her. Cue a story about the literal divide between rich and poor (yep, the political undertone here looks about as subtle as a slap in the face from a wet fish but is still intriguing) and lots of running around/jumping between worlds as the star-crossed pair struggle to stay together.

It could be entertaining, even if the subtext isn't so much with the "sub". Upside Down hits the US on March 15, but there appears to be no UK release set as of yet.
