We do movies based on books around here. Sometimes TV shows based on books. And once in a great while those books are graphic comic books. Valerian is the upcoming movie based on a series of French graphic novels featuring Valérian and Laureline created by Pierre Christin & Jean Claude Mezieres.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is the latest film from Luc Besson, best known for The Fifth Element and Lucy. Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) a pair of government operatives who are sent to the city of Alpha on a mission that will help save the human race.
To be honest, I’m mainly sharing the trailer because it’s set to The Beatle’s Because, one of the most beautiful songs ever created.
All those Avatar looking beings are not my thing but I do know that sci fi fans seeing the trailer for the first time are going nuts. One called it “an eye-bursting trailer.’’ Eye-bursting it is. Take a look.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets will hit theaters on July 21st, 2017.
