Last night London’s Leicester Square hosted the European Premiere of Luc Besson’s stunning Valerian and a City of a Thousand Planets with cast Cara Delevingne, Dane DeHaan and Rihanna in attendance, alongside Luc. It looked epic with the cast and director walking down the blue carpet.
In the 28th century, Valerian and Laureline 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.
