valerian and the city of a thousand planets

The first image for Luc Besson's sci-fi epic, VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS, hit yesterday and presented our two leads sporting some battle armor. While it didn't quite fall in line with what we've seen in previous on-set photos, we now have some images straight for Entertainment Weekly. To go along with these, the director also had a few words to say regarding the story and his actors. Take a look!

Regarding the shooting schedule:

Tomorrow will be half of the film. Our total is 98 days, but I saved two days already on the schedule. I feel really, honestly, more than happy. Which is rare. Usually I’m always skeptical and I wait for the editing, but I have so much good stuff already. The trick of the film was to be sure that Valerian and Laureline were working as a couple. And if I have that, I’m safe.

On the leads, Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne:

Since day one, they clicked. They connected. Dane is already a genius before he met me. But Cara right now is like a bird who’s taking off. She’s really going to be such a huge star.

His name is K-Tron. He’s a police officer. You can’t even deal with him. You don’t argue with him. He’s not really important in the film, but he’s just like the the military police. Believe me, I have hundreds of these characters like him.

When I started to write this at 13 years old, I was living in the country of cheese, and I wanted to make movies. But when I open my windows I see cows, so believe me, that pushes your imagination. Because you want to escape. I start to read Valerian when I was 10. At the time there was no Internet; there wasn’t even a TV at home. So I read and just had my imagination. So when I look at bluescreen, I see everything. My imagination is very comfortable with bluescreen.

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

I'm looking forward to this. Fifth Element was great, though the comedy took a few viewings to grow on me. This one looks a bit more serious. It's good to have Besson back in Sci-Fi. Also, say what you will about "Miss Eyebrow". She looks like she's probably an incredible pain in the ass in the real world, but I the girl has some acting talent...
