Luc Besson has been a favorite director of mine for over twenty years now. His latest film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets arrives in July 2017, and the first trailer has arrived.

Rooted in the classic graphic novel series, Valerian and Laureline- visionary writer/director Luc Besson advances this iconic source material into a contemporary, unique and epic science fiction saga.

Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe.

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.

WOW! This looks as beautiful as The Fifth Element, if not more so. I’m hoping the movie has a solid engaging story. I haven’t read the graphic novel, but I think I’ll dig around and see if I can find it.

What are your thoughts on the trailer?

    For a teaser, it looks good, though the music did nothing for me.
