Upside Down (trailer)

So there’s no official site, there’s no release date set for either the U.S. or the U.K. — in fact, the film doesn’t appear to have distribution deals in either region — but folk are getting excited, thanks to this French trailer. (The film does appear to have distribution in France, Germany, and Canada.)

The concept does look intriguing: two worlds with their own indepedent gravity, so they hang opposite each other.

It’s Romeo and Juliet on neighboring space wheels. Hopefully the film is something more than a love story in a funky place — hopefully it tuly uses its funkiness in a fresh way, in a way that actually matters to the story.

Or maybe it doesn’t. For Kirsten Dust has been quoted at Indiewire as describing the film as:

kind of like an accessible ‘Brazil.’

Brazil is not accessible? *groan* This is a dumbed-down Brazil?

This does not give me hope.

The point is, however, that the most vocal film lovers on the Web — genre fans — are talking about this film in a mostly positive way. So how is Warner Bros. responding?, where I found this trailer, says:

Warner Bros has been removing the trailer [from the Net]

Sure enough, at Hero Complex:

Warner Bros. must be living in an upside-down universe of its own if it wants to discourage passionate movie lovers from talking about its movie.
