Director Luc Besson is back with this new trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Special operatives Valerian and Laureline maintain order throughout the universe for the government of the human territories. Under orders from their commander, 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.
At first glance I’m getting Guardians of the Galaxy meets Avatar meets The Fifth Element meets God knows what else. For a trailer it sure is a spectacle to behold. Luc Besson’s distinctive movie making style may not be for everyone but it sure is for me, and I do sincerely hope it is for you.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets stars Dane DeHaan as Valerian and Cara Delevingne as Laureline. It also features Rihanna (which you can briefly see in the trailer), Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman and Kris Wu.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets hits theaters July 21st 2017.
