Valerian Teaser Trailer
Get ready to go on a visual sci-fi adventure as Europa and director Luc Besson release their teaser trailer for next year’s upcoming movie Valerian (or its full title Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets). View trailer below.
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.
Hmmm….interesting. This looks interesting. While I have heard of the graphic novel, I’ve never picked one up, so I’m complete in the dark about what Valerian is all about with only the summary above to shine some light on the story. As for the movie, it looks like a summer blockbuster feature, with plenty of CG visuals. While they don’t look as sharp as some blockbuster movies out there, the film’s visuals are pretty creative and imaginative with all the various creatures, locales, and other sci-fi nuances. Will this movie be good…who knows. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Valerian (i.e. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets) arrives in theaters next year on July 21st, 2017
