I don’t think I’ve seen a Luc Besson movie that I didn’t like, which is why I’m really excited to see what the director has to bring with his adaptation of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. The new trailer has arrived, and it continues to look glorious.
Based on the comic book series by Pierre Chistin and Jean-Claude Mézières, the adaptation is described as follows:
In the 28th century, special operatives Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) maintain order throughout the universe for the government of the human territories. Under orders from their commander (Clive Owen), the duo embark on a mission to Alpha, an intergalactic city where diverse species share their technology and resources for the betterment of all. The ever-expanding metropolis is also home to sinister forces that jeopardize the future of mankind.
This is one of the movies I am most looking forward to this year.
