Upside Down Trailer: Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess’s Love Versus Gravity

Have you ever wondered, What would it be like if Earth was super close to another planet that had the opposite gravitational pull from us, so that to get there, you'd have to fall up or jump down? Okay, probably not, but apparently director Juan Diego Solanas has, and the result is Upside Down. In it, Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess play star-crossed lovers who meet when they're young but are unable to be together because they live on different planets. (It's kind of like Romeo & Juliet, but the families are planets.) Sturgess attempts to ignore the rules banning inter-planet travel to find Dunst. Do you think if/when they get together at the end they'll break out into a rendition of "Defying Gravity" from Wicked? Yeah, probably not.
