Take a look to the official logo of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, the upcoming science-fiction movie directed by Luc Besson and based on the 1967 French graphic novel “Valerian and Laureline”
“Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) 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 (Clive Owen), 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.”
Luc Besson, who now heads Europacorp, previously brought us The Big Blue, Nikita, Leon, The Fifth Element, and Lucy. So there’s reason to hope that Valerian will a hell of an epic movie!
Maybe I’ll give a try to the original comic book it’s based on.
The release date of the movie Valerian is set to July 21, 2017.
Update – Do you spot the Valerian concept art on the floor in the background:
