The first trailer for Luc Besson’s “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” has finally droped and IT LOOKS AMAZING. Spaceships? Check! Space-guns? Check! Cool looking aliens? Check! Leeloo Multipass? Um… well no but still check it out.
Seriously though, this looks like “The Fifth Element” to the nth degree.
“Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” is based on a graphic novel by Jean-Claude Mézières and it’s the graphic novel that Besson has been obsessed with since he was a child. He was so obsessed with it, that he collaborated with Mézières on “The Fifth Element.”
“Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” starring Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, hits theaters in 2017. I cannot wait.
