It’s been about four months since we got our very first look at Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, but we haven’t heard much about the movie since. That’s about to change, though, as it appears that a brand new trailer for the film is on the way.
Director Luc Besson broke the news via his Instagram, revealing that the upcoming sneak peak is set to debut on Thursday, March 30th. You can check out his post below.
The film stars Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Kris Wu, John Goodman, Ethan Hawke, Sam Spruell, Alain Chabat, Mathieu Kassovitz, Herbie Hancock and Rutger Hauer. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets opens on July 21st.
