First Look: Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst in Sci-Fi 'Upside Down'

Upside Down

Late last year we wrote about a new sci-fi project in the works called Upside Down, a romantic drama with a love story set between two opposite worlds – one above, one below - facing each other, hence the title. The film has already finished shooting and is in post-production now, but some of the very first photos recently appeared on into the screen (via SlashFilm). They're not as exciting as you'd expect for a film called Upside Down, but they do intrigue me, and I'm certainly interested in seeing lots more from this. In addition to that good shot of the two of them above, there's two more unique (yet seemingly unofficial) posters to see below.

Jim Sturgess & Kirsten Dunst in Upside Down

Jim Sturgess stars as Adam, 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, played by Kirsten Dunst (notice the names?). That 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. It's written and directed by Argentinian filmmaker Juan Diego Solanas, but doesn't have a distributor.

    There is no posibility of this being any good. It looks bad. ... wont be good. why? because it looks bad. Why? because there is nothing odd or sci fi about an upside down world at all. All you have to do is just turn your TV upside down or watch the movie at a theater while standing on your head. ... its just to simple and dumb to be any good.
    colored me intrigued.

    Exactly how many joints did Juan Diego have before coming up with this idea? cos I need some of what he's smoking... Nah seriously, wtf?! an upside down world? does gravity invert half way up? how does the sun rise? Why is the other world beyond reach when I can clearly see a building connecting the two in the second poster?

    I like the idea.

    Is that really Jim "Across the Universe" Sturgess? Looks more like Javier Bardem.
  • @2 - Hahahah, proper! This sounds like it'll be cool, but it just seems like it will turn out to be like "Across The Universe". Total style over substance.
  • Some French guy
    The guy dancing with Kirsten Dunst is not Jim Sturgess. It's the famous Argentinian dancer Pablo Veron, seen in "The Tango Lesson".

    The left poster was the original poster they had in mind, the right was the post-inception effort...
