Revered filmmaker Luc Besson is ready to take audiences into a stunning new science fiction universe in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
The final trailer has just been released, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Check it out below:
Here’s the synopsis:
Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are space operatives who are governed with the protection of the space-time continuum. But the two find themselves constantly at odds because of Valerian’s wild romantic feelings for his co-pilot. When they are commanded to embark on a mission to the magnificent intergalactic metropolis of Alpha, they soon discover a sinister plot that could shake the very core of the universe and must do everything in their power to stop it.
Set to a riveting remix of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise”, the trailer showcases some gorgeous set pieces along with plenty of intriguing alien species. Rising stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne appear to have great chemistry as the heroic Valerian and Laureline, while Besson shows off some of his brilliant film-making tricks, including a very ambitious Steadicam shot.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Plants will be an unmissable cinematic event when it is released in cinemas on July 21 in the US, and on August 10 in New Zealand and Australia.
