Adam and Eden fell in love as teens despite the fact that they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions. Ten years after a forced separation, Adam sets out on a dangerous quest to reconnect with his love.
I’m all for doing a Romeo and Juliet-style love story set against a science fiction backdrop, but Upside Down looks kinda silly, in my opinion. The logistics of the dual-world just don’t seem to make a whole lot of sense, and I’m getting the impression that this will be another movie like In Time with an intriguing premise that will ultimately collapse under its inherent plot holes. Oh, and can anyone tell me why Kirsten Dunst has a fetish for upside-down kisses? Also, I love how the word “Down” in the title card is upside down, which makes it look like the movie is called Upside Nmod.
Upside Down comes out March 15, 2013.
