The action packed and stunning new trailer for Luc Besson’s VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS has landed!
Starring Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne alongside Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke and Rihanna in the stunning sci-fi adventure coming to UK cinemas in Summer 2017.
The official synopsis reads,
VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of Leon, 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.
Plus earlier on this year, we had news of the Lexus Skyjet reveal and interview with Dane DeHaan on vimeo.
Where they unveiled a replica of the Skyjet, a futuristic pursuit aircraft created for the film with support from Lexus designers. The presentation took place in Miami as part of a showcase for the luxury brand’s latest products and lifestyle activities.
The Valerian team wanted the Skyjet to be grounded in reality, yet befitting the world of the adventure, set 700 years in the future. The film’s creatives collaborated with designers at Lexus to incorporate contemporary design cues, adapted from its current model range.
Dane De Haan said:
“I have always wanted to work with (Valerian director) Luc Besson because he really hones in on every single detail in his films, bringing the narrative to life in the most imaginative way possible. The collaboration on the Skyjet is a great example of this. Valerian’s epic chase scenes with the Skyjet are to be some of the most exhilarating moments in the film.”
The unveiling was choreographed to a dramatic light show before DeHaan took to the stage to talk about filming with the Skyjet and working on set with his co-star Cara Delevingne and director Besson.
