The first teaser trailer for the latest comic book adaptation, Valerian and The City Of A Thousand Planets, arrived earlier today and it looks pretty damn great – now we have some awesome images to go along with the teaser.
Valerian and The City Of A Thousand Planets is the upcoming movie from the great director Luc Besson, the mind behind Lucy and The Fifth Element. On Valerian and Laureline’s travels, they meet an extraterrestrial race called the Khortan Dahuk in the year 2135. They originate from Kas-ônar – which is approximately 5000 light years from our beloved Planet Earth.
The aforementioned teaser opted to give us stunning visuals and hid the plot and narrative from us, so here’s the official synopsis to help you get clued up:
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.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is looking to hit theaters in July 21, 2017.
