It’s finally here – after months of teasing with set photos and behind-the-scenes footage, as well as appearances at both San Diego and New York Comic-Cons, EuropaCorp have revealed the first teaser trailer for Luc Besson’s epic return to the space sci-fi genre, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Without further ado – see it below:
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 theatres on July 21, 2017.
