In just a little while, Luc Besson will be taking to Hall H of Comic Con for his very first appearance in San Diego. The man who brought us films like The Professional and The Fifth Element, will be on hand to promote his latest film, VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS.
We’ll have a recap of the panel later today, but to tide us over, EuropaCorp has released a new image for film.
VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS arrives in theaters on JULY 21, 2017 and stars: Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock, Kris Wu
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.
