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.
