The trailer for Luc Besson’s upcoming sci-fi adventure, Valerian, will be with us in a few days, but in the meantime take a look at the first few seconds of footage along with a couple of new posters…
When footage from Luc Besson’s Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets screened at SDCC earlier this year, it was met with a standing ovation – so fans have been looking forward to the first official trailer, which is set to debut this Thursday.
In anticipation of that, EuropaCorp has released a brief teaser for the sci-fi flick, along with a couple of posters featuring the main cast members: Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne.
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 also stars John Goodman, Ethan Hawke, Clive Owen, Rutger Hauer and Rihanna, and is set to hit theaters on July 21, 2017.
