Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets released a new poster and new images for New York Comic Con. Fans in attendance of NYCC can check out a fun and immersive booth for the film and comics on the convention floor from 10am to 7pm, but for those who won’t be able to make it, the film still has a little more to show you.
It’s taking a big chance, considering the track record of duck-billed aliens in film, but this one does look fantastic. Luc Besson is a guy who could make this kind of thing work, and the source material is brilliant.
I’m not locked into Dane DeHaan yet, and I might need to see some footage before I feel more comfortable with him, but Cara Delevingne has proven that she can pull off some interesting roles recently.
You’ve still got a long wait, but take a look below and let us know what you think of this one.
VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS arrives in theaters on JULY 21, 2017!
Writer/Director: Luc Besson
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.
