Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Trailer Final

Final Trailer Offers Last Tease of Besson’s “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has just introduced its final trailer, and much in line with the previous two, its packed wall-to-wall with sci-fi action.

Luc Besson’s CGI odyssey stars Dane DeHaan as Valerian, who, along with his partner Laureline, have ten hours to save Alpha, the city of a thousand planets.  From what we’ve seen so far, their journey will take them through a plethora of climates as they come face-to-face with a hodgepodge of creatures that play to the film’s overall impressive visual aesthetics.

Busson appears to be taking the film’s title seriously as we navigate a wide range of places.  And with some killer environments and jaw dropping special effects, the trailer makes a run at putting franchises like Star Trek and Star Wars to shame.

Adapted from the French graphic novels Valerian and Laureline, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Plants has been a passion project of Busson’s for years.  We’ll know if his valiant efforts pay off when the film hits theaters on July 21.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
