Valerian Sci-Fi Movie

"Every particle of your body will be blown away!" Now this looks amazing! My kind of science fiction. MTV has also debuted a new behind-the-scenes featurette (in addition to Kong: Skull Island) for Luc Besson's Valerian, or Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, starring Dane DeHaan & Cara Delevingne. The video features MTV's Josh Horowitz on a tour of the Valerian sets in France, speaking with director Luc Besson about the production and the casting and everything. As a huge fan of The Fifth Element, I can't wait for this - big, gritty, futuristic sci-fi and it looks awesome. I love the outfits, and details like the little futuristic gizmo on DeHaan's neck. There are so many tiny things to pick up on in this footage - enjoy!

Here's the first behind-the-scenes featurette for Luc Besson's new sci-fi Valerian, direct from MTV:

Luc Besson's Valerian

In Luc Besson's Valerian, DeHaan and Delevingne will play the iconic characters Valerian and Laureline. Besson will write and direct the film. Virginie Besson Silla will produce on behalf of EuropaCorp which will finance, produce and distribute the film. Valerian, which has influenced generations of Sci-Fi writers and directors, was created by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres in 1967 and has since sold over 10 million copies in 21 languages. Production is currently underway in Paris, France with a global release slated for summer 2017. Description from Amazon: "Valerian and his partner, Laureline, are agents for the vast Galaxity organization. In the past their missions have taken them to all corners of the galaxy and through time as well. But now Galaxity is gone, and Valerian and Laureline are dependent upon their meager remaining resources and their ingenuity." Stay tuned for more updates and follow @lucbesson for the latest.

Damn!!! I still am a little wary of Besson after LUCY, but even that had its moments here and there. I will definitely keep the feelers out for VALERIAN.

I didnt mind Lucy. Although I didnt see it until it was on the movie channels so there were zero expectations.

Luc Besson is one of the main reasons I love film. Fifth Element and The Professional are classics. I can't wait for him to return to Si-Fi (Blocking Lucy out of mind). Should be a treat.

I can't wait for this. I love a lot of Luc Besson movies--hell, I even liked Lucy. But The Fifth Element really is what makes me look most forward to this (apart from being a huge Sci-fi fan). I'm sure this is going to be just as colorful and fun at the absolute least. I cannot freaking wait. Also, Cara and Josh have a lot of chemistry.

This looks absolutely horrible... "I think its a really good idea to take something that was THE original... and make it today". Really, a REALLY good idea? John Carter of Mars anyone?

Sorry for any mistake. English isn't my native language. I really, really like a tv series ,,Time Jam" and I enjoy how Valerian and REDHEAD Laureline looks. When I saw these video... it's horrible. They're looking like kids or too younger. And why she has a blond hair?
