Spectacularly Awesome Trailer for Luc Besson's Sci-Fi Film VALERIAN
I was completely blown away by the footage that was screened at Comic-Con for director Luc Besson's new sci-fi film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Now you get a chance to see some of the footage for yourself in the first official trailer to be released for the epic-looking adventure. Seriously, this movie looks insanely stunning!
The movie is based on a French comic book series that was written by Pierre Christin with art by Jean-Claude Mézières, and Besson seems to have taken it and created something big, exciting, and awesome!
The movie stars Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad), and this is the synopsis that was released:
Valerian (DeHaan) and Laureline (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.
The film also has a great supporting cast that includes John Goodman, Rihanna, Rutger Hauer, and Ethan Hawke. It's set to be released in theaters on July 21, 2017, and I honestly cannot wait to see it! This looks like it going to be one hell of a fun flick!
