John Connor [Celluloid 11.10.16] France scifi action thriller adventure comic



Luc Besson's Eurpoa Corp. have released the first teaser for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Besson's epic science fiction film based on a French comic series from writers Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières that first appeared in 1967.

All set to The Beatles' "Because", it features far flung worlds, incredible creatures and action galore. Can't wait for a full trailer.


Synopsis:
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 stars Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu.

Valerian opens in theaters on July 21.
