MESMERIZING FIRST POSTERS FOR SF ROMANCE "UPSIDE DOWN" WITH KIRSTEN DUNST AND JIM STURGESS

It seems that the lovely and very intriguing Kirsten Dunst sf romance "Upside Down", which HOLLYWOOD SPY wrote about last autumn, is progressing really nice. Check out the first posters. As you know, the story of "Upside Down" takes place in two worlds that are literally on top each other, each city with their own gravity system. Sadly, the citizens of each town can not visit the other, for unknown reasons. Jim Sturgess plays the main character Adam, who falls in love with a girl from the upside down world Eve, played by Kirsten Dunst. And like any good lovelorn hero, he's not going to let a little thing like gravity get in the way of his heart's desire.
The big plus in this movie is its production designer Alex McDowell ("Watchmen", "The Crow", "Fight Club","The Minority Report").

  5. In other words, it should be visually stunning.
    Interesting concept.

  6. Looking excellent. Production design, like cinematography (Tak Fujimoto is the best ever!) and set design is often VERY overlooked.

  7. Man, the "Adam" and "Eve" things are done to death. Where's all the creativity?

  8. Hmmm very confused about how exactly they'd fall in love... I mean... certainly they can't see each other over all those sky scrapers.

    yep, I expect a visually stunning design. In sf movies that's always very important.

  12. It looks promising, but I'm not particularly excited about Kirsten Dunst. She's a mediocre actress, in my opinion.

  13. yep, Kirsten isn't an overly-talented actress, I still haven't recovered from the stunningly horrible performance she gave in MARIE ANTOINETTE.
