Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan must be delighted to see how gorgeous the first trailer for their film ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ looks. The space epic, directed by Luc Besson, has every single thing a sci-fi fan could want.
Sweet spaceships, stylish spacesuits, weapons, monsters, portals, aliens, and a bunch of other really neat sh*t. The film is based on Pierre Christin’s French comic series. This trailer is almost too much to handle. It’s like eating an entire cake for breakfast. You love it while you’re eating it, but after you take that last bite, it’s like, “What did I just do? And how long before I can do it again?”
This movie also has an impressive cast. We mentioned Delevingne and DeHaan above, but you also have Ethan Hawke, John Goodman and Clive Owen. Oh, and yes that is a Beatles song you hear playing during the trailer. Besson claims it’s the first time the group has let one of their songs be used in a trailer. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr had to sign off on it.
It’s scheduled to be released July 21, 2017. Check out the official synopsis and trailer below…
“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.”
