Luc Besson is back with a bang – EuropaCorp and STX have debuted the brand new full trailer for the Fifth Element director’s return to the sci-fi genre that is Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Watch the new look below:
This follows STX’s presentation at CinemaCon yesterday, where the new trailer was shown off in 3D to assembled theatre owners and industry press.
Valerian and Laureline are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner – blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him. Under directive from their Commander, Valerian and Laureline embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all four corners of the universe. Alpha’s seventeen million inhabitants have converged over time – uniting their talents, technology and resources for the betterment of all. Unfortunately, not everyone on Alpha shares in these same objectives; in fact, unseen forces are at work, placing our race in great danger.
Starring Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen and Rihanna, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets lands in U.S. theatres on July 21, and in the UK on August 4.
