Written by: DaVette See


The new trailer for Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets just dropped.

It is, in a word, breathtaking.

More aliens, more Alpha, more EVERYTHING, the new trailer for Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets has fans of both the Valérian & Laureline series and of filmmaker Luc Besson gobsmacked and filled with anticipation of the film’s release.  But even if they haven’t heard of the comic series or the filmmaker, people are probably going to want to watch this film after seeing the remarkable visuals in this trailer. 

Move over Star Wars.  Move over Avatar.  It’s safe to say that Valerian is going to look, unlike anything we’ve seen on film to date.

From the Producers

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy, based on the ground-breaking comic book series which inspired a generation of artists, writers, and filmmakers. 

In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories.  Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha-an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence, and cultures with each other.  There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.
