Watch first trailer from the upcoming science fiction film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, starring Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, and Rihanna.
I know we’re still trying to finish out 2016, but it’s never too early to start thinking of the awesome films the next year will bring us. For me, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is definitely on my list of highly anticipated movies.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is based on the classic graphic novel series, Valerian and Laureline. Writer/director Luc Besson adapts this iconic source material into a contemporary, unique, and epic science fiction saga, starring Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu.
Check out the teaser trailer below to get a glimpse into this imaginative and breathtaking universe:
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.
And did you notice the song featured in the trailer…? It’s The Beatles’ “Because” from their 1969 Abbey Road album! And this is actually the first time a Beatles master has been licensed for use in a movie trailer.
Take a look at eight images from Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which includes a closer look at Valerian and Laureline’s adventures across the universe.
The film hits theaters on July 21, 2017.
