The amazing last trailer for Valerian has crash landed onto the web with a boom. This one is a bit more action focused than some of the earlier ones. Even so, it does look amazing. It seems to be the film to see in 3D on a huge IMAX screen.
On the other hand, I do have a feeling that it may bomb here in the UK. It’s from a comic that we don’t know. On the other hand it’s Luc Besson & he’s done amazing sci-fi before with 1997’s The Fifth Element. Finger’s crossed it does as well as it deserves to do.
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.
