Finally – An American Trailer For The Visually Striking Fantasy Film, Upside Down

Though it’s not Russian, Juan Diego Solanas‘ sci-fi fantasy Upside Down was released in Russia long enough ago that I’ve already been able to import it on Blu-ray. A weird quibble of international film distribution.

The US release, however, is going to be post converted into 3D. That’s something I haven’t seen.

You’ll see from the imagery in this trailer why the US distributor thought a 3D wrapper might be a good idea.

So, having given the film a spin in the ol’ player, I can tell you that Jim Sturgess is great and Kirsten Dunst is Kirsten Dunst and that too much of the film is filled with people explaining things that either seem preposterous or don’t matter at all.

I’m completely sure they’re not going to put the bees into any of the trailers. They don’t want people to know about the bees. The bee stuff is nuts.

Still, it’s a film filled with rich, imaginative visuals and sometimes those visuals carry a bit of heft. One more draft of the screenplay by a better dramatist and we’d really have had something special here.
