Discover “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”

STXfilms dropped the final trailer for its upcoming Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, Luc Besson’s elaborately detailed visit to a not-so-small planet. Previous Valerian clips introduced us to the characters and cast (Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, as Valerian and Laureline, respectively), but this final trailer seems geared more to the film’s universe itself, delighting in the locales — above and below water — and the various creatures who call them home.

The trailer also gives a broad-brush into to the premise: Alpha, a city of peace and prosperity, is under attack. Valerian and Laureline are sent to defend the city from the mysterious dark force that threatens not just Alpha but the entire universe. Besson’s script is based on the Dargaud comic book series Valerian And Laureline by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières.

The film is in theaters July 21, 2017. Written and directed by Luc Besson, Valerian also stars Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu. Virginie Besson-Silla is producer.

A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.

Director: Luc Besson
Writers: Pierre Christin (comic book), Jean-Claude Mézières (comic book)
Stars: Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen
