There is something really joyous about Luc Besson returning to intergalactic space romps such as The Fifth Element. His latest release Lucy was something of a dud, having the themes there but developing them rubbish. This is completely reminiscent of Bruce Willis’ adventure and looks completely exciting.
So wonderfully named Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets revolves around the titular character and his special agent partner Laureline who are embarking on a mission in the breath-taking intergalactic city of Alpha. However, a great evil has grown there and it’s up to the pair to stop them.
Starring Dane DeHaan, Cara DeLevinge, and Rhianna, this could be what Jupiter Ascending should’ve been. A complete and utter fantastical space romp.
