VALERIAN Teaser Unleashes Bold Sci-Fi Vision (VIDEO)

Luc Besson is definitely in his element.

With a bold focus on eye-popping visuals over hints about the narrative, this first teaser for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is a true big-budget sci-fi spectacle of the first order. From the visionary director of The Fifth Element, this extravaganza should fit very well into the Summer Movie landscape.

Its success, though, will depend on how ready people are to show up for something that’s not based on a major pre-existing property (this comes from a niche graphic novel). Can Besson ascend to Avatar levels in the zeitgeist, or will his latest effort – despite how good it may be – struggle in that middling Edge Of Tomorrow range (which was also based on a niche graphic novel).

Suffice it to say, this teaser should definitely do its job to spark interest.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which stars Dane DeHaanCara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke, Rihanna, and John Goodman, opens on July 21, 2017.
