Dazzling Final Trailer Lands for Luc Besson's New Sci-Fi Epic 'Valerian'
"You have less than 10 hours to find the threat and eliminate it." EuropaCorp has launched the third and final trailer for Luc Besson's epic new sci-fi movie, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, or just Valerian for short. 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 full of different species 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 others. This is looking better and better the more we see, and despite seemingly packed with CGI, I'm still very excited for it. Bring it on!
Final trailer (+ posters) for Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, on YouTube:
In the 28th century, Valerian (DeHaan) and Laureline (Delevingne) are a team of operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the city of Alpha – an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other. There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe. Valerian is both written and directed by French filmmaker Luc Besson, of La Femme Nikita, Léon, The Fifth Element, Angel-A, Adèle Blanc-Sec, The Lady, and Lucy. Adapted from the graphic novels by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres. EuropaCorp will release Besson's Valerian in theaters starting July 21st in the summer. Follow @lucbesson for more.

Saw the trailer for this at GOTG2 the other day, thought it looked pretty good in a 5th Element kind of way.

Fifth element is absolutely one of my favorites movies so will def check this out. hes kind of using a few elements from that movie too like a current hot supermodel for the lead and some pop culture like rihanna in it.

Escapism at its finest. And it's European, so that is another plus ...

I have faith in Luc but the least likable of all the trailers, this looks more like a video game than a movie

That over the should sequence looked RAD! This may be one of those that's required to be seen in 3D! I'm down man. Count me IN.

This is definitely a 3D Imax movie, but I would imagine one I won't feel the need to own. I sure like the look though, sometimes these CGI fests really hit the right buttons with me. I love all the aliens. I'm still holding out for Star Control 2 - The Movie!
