Must Watch: Teaser Trailer for Luc Besson's Epic New Sci-Fi 'Valerian'
"We get on just great…" EuropaCorp has released the teaser trailer for Luc Besson's epic return to sci-fi, an action movie called Valerian - or in full - Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Based on the graphic novel series, the movie stars Dane DeHaan as Valerian, and Cara Delevingne as Laureline, special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. They must travel to an intergalactic city called Alpha on a mission. The full cast includes Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, Rutger Hauer, Mathieu Kassovitz, Sam Spruell, Kris Wu, Alain Chabat and many others. As a huge, huge fan of The Fifth Element, this is definitely my cup of tea, and it looks like it's going to be awesome. I'm so ready for Luc Besson to bring us another big space opera. Dive in.
