Luc Besson returns to epic sci-fi with the first trailer for Valerian

11.10.2016

Valerian banner

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. Writer/director Luc Besson has returned to epic sci-fi with his trailer for VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS!

I know I'm in the minority when I say I'm not the biggest fan of THE FIFTH ELEMENT, but there's no denying its style. I wasn't sure what to expect after seeing all of the set-pics of VALERIAN thus far, but I'm happy to see that there's at least going to be some serious eye-candy going on here! There's very few movies I deem necessary to check out in 3D, but VALERIAN is definitely one of them. Here's hoping the story and characters can measure up!

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS hits theaters on July 21, 2017.

Trailer looks fun, although I do understand the apprehension towards this project. To take a more optimistic angle, I think a film's merit shouldn't be determined by how much CGI it utilizes, but rather how it uses the CGI. We may not get something deep and philosophical, but if this turns out to be as half as creative as it looks we'll get a fun summer movie.

I was really looking forward to this, since I had no idea what it was. Then I watched that trailer and now I understand kind of what it is and to me, it looks like one I'll be skipping.

The only problem is..

That I can't stand Dane DeHaan.... I don't know why but the only thing that can hurt this movie are the two lead choice...

I will admit it looks way more interesting than I thought it would. Hopefully Besson didn't create another "Sucker Punch", colorful, fun to look at, but as soulless as a doll's eyes...

Some of you said it looks like Jupiter Ascending. If there was anything great about that film, it was the visuals. So in this case, I don't think the similarity is bad.

Wow lots of haters...

In the comments... I loved The Fifth Element. Luc Besson has been hit or miss but the hits were great movies, especially Fifth Element. I'm hoping for hit and I'll go see it before I start trashing it from a trailer. Nice job people.

Cara is awful

Everything seems fine enough to reserve judgment but as always Cara is.....bleh. Why does she get good roles?

Jupiter Ascending looked gorgeous. But it was too scatterbrained. Every sci-fi idea they could lay their hands on chucked in to a big bowl like a kid at an all you can eat restaurant.

This movie just needs more focus, and I'll love it.

Would have been funny if it said, "From the visionary Director of Lockout."

Also, This looks terrible and it even proves it'll be terrible since Rhianna is in it.

My bad... He wrote the screenplay and had the original idea. Which he ended up being sued over and lost due to plagiarism.

Wtf? It's not based on any nostalgic franchise or comic I've heard of. Why would anyone pay to see something they haven't heard of before? Screw this.

I have no idea what audience this aimed at, and I'm a.paul verhoven fan. But sadly this has flop written all over it.
Looks like.a.modern take on those awful scifi 80's films. Feela very dated and old fashioned.

That Beatles song was so good for the trailer. Had to watch it twice to be sure. Kind of like Kubo using Beatles and Logan using Johnny Cash. And the movie looks wild and fun. Like 5th Element with todays technology.

Has a very "John Carter" vibe. I will see it but I don't see this movie doing very well at the box office.

Looks very beautiful but Besson hasn't made a good film since Leon and the 5th Element which was btw very pretty also but a very badly written film. Seems like he doesn't care anymore, except for paying the bills to keep alive his parisian studio which must cost a lot! (which explains all the awfully bad action flicks he keeps producing for more than a decade now, easy money). Anyway, no much faith in this unfortunately, I enjoy the source material but it seems derivative enough already....

Unleashed and Kiss of the Dragon were good as well. But yes, he had some stinkers under his belt (as an Producer).

Guardians of the Avatar Wars

Looks pretty lousy to me. So many things have been taken from the source material already that it makes this movie feel really derivative.

Some of the CGI recent blockbusters has been gosh-awful but the effects work here looks pretty sick.

Looks pretty damn cool. I haven't watched Besson's latest directorial efforts, so I'm not sure if he's still got it. But getting an Avatar meets Total Recall meets Terry Gilliam, with a little Guardians of the Galaxy thrown in. Actually I don't know what the hell I'm watching, but I like it. And "Because" is an inspired choice for music. Makes me think there's a lot more to this than the usual sci-fi action.

Do nothing else on the Internet until you Youtube the entire Beatles and Beach Boys catalogue. You have offended me and every other legitimate music lover, sir. I would insult you, but you're a Broncos fan, so you deserve the benefit of the doubt.

Looks big and fun; I'm just hoping it doesn't turn out to be more John Carter than another Jupiter Ascending.
