Trailer For 'Valerian' Released; A New Space Opera Emerges

Valerian and Laureline, is one comic-book out of the many to get a live action adaptation, that will also release next year, a year in which comic-book films are in the plenty. To get the momentum going in regards to hype up the film, EuropaCorp has released a trailer of the Luc Besson-directed film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. It showcases the two main characters, Valerian played by Dane DeHaan and Laureline played by Cara Delevingne, traversing the cosmos battling foes of all species.


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. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner- blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him. 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.

The film is directed by Luc Besson and stars Dane DaHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu. 

Valerian releases July 21, 2017.
