Official Full-Length Trailer for Luc Besson's Adèle Blanc-Sec
We're one of the few sites that has been consistently featuring the teasers and photos for Les Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec, the French period action-adventure movie from Luc Besson. One reason is that I'm a big Luc Besson fan and love almost all of his work. The other reason is that this actually looks awesome, like a big budget Indiana Jones-style adventure with a female lead set in France, simple as that. Twitch (via SlashFilm) just discovered that the first full-length trailer has debuted online (via Yahoo France) and can be seen below. It's still in French (no subtitles), but it looks fantastic. Check it out below!

The story is about Adele Blanc-Sec (played by Louise Bourgoin), an "an intrepid young reporter" who will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes. The odd thing is that IMDb calls this an animated movie "set in the early party of the 20th century and focused on a popular novelist and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, monsters, and other distractions." It's definitely not animated, though. She's fighting a pterodactyl in this because that's what she does in the comics this is based on. We're not sure when it's coming to the US, but we will be keeping our eye out for it!
