A new TV spot has been released for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, giving us a new look at The Fifth Element director Luc Besson’s gloriously weird sci-fi epic. The film is based on the comic book series of the same name and takes place in the 28th century, where a duo of special operatives—Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laurelines (Cara Delevingne)—are tasked with maintaining order throughout the human territories. They’re given their toughest assignment yet: traveling to the city of Alpha and unmasking a menace that threatens the entire universe. Check it out below:
My take: looks like a bad acid trip crossed with Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Luc Besson’s greatest achievement, The Fifth Element, with a touch of Wachowski. I won’t be watching it. How about you?
