Sci-Fi fans, and especially fans of Luc Besson (Fifth Element) are probably positive jumping out of their skin in anticipation of this, what is sure to be, sci-fi classic. Starring Cara Delavigne (Suicide Squad) & Dane Dehaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), the film is based on a french graphic novel, about Valerian and Laureline, a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Together they embark on an epic journey filled with adventure and as-yet-unrevealed threats.
Above you will find the latest trailer (Courtesy of STX Entertainment) showcasing what looks to be a visual spectacular, stellar set pieces, amazing creatures and locations, as well as stellar acting. A pleasant surprise for me personally was the appearance of Owen Wilson and pop megastar, Rihanna in the trailer. The movie really looks like it could live up to Besson’s previous outings into the world of sci-fi and with the incredible visual effects on show in this trailer, it’s definitely possible that it might even outshine them.
Check out the film’s official synopsis below:
VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy, based on the ground-breaking comic book series which inspired a generation of artists, writers and filmmakers.
In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha—an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other. There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.
