Luc Besson’s return to sci-fi is nothing short of genius and the new trailer for his adaptation of French comic book series Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets proves that.
The second trailer offers more plot details and a breathtaking new look at the beautifully crafted alien worlds.
Check it out below:
Valerian is based on the classic French comic series written by Pierre Christin. It stars Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad).
Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner – blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him. Under directive from their Commander (Clive Owen), Valerian and Laureline embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all four corners of the universe. Alpha’s seventeen million inhabitants have converged over time – uniting their talents, technology and resources for the betterment of all. Unfortunately, not everyone on Alpha shares in these same objectives; in fact, unseen forces are at work, placing our race in great danger.
Valerian is set to hit screens July 21, 2017
