Chic scifi director Luc Besson takes on French cult comic Valérian and Laureline

Luc Besson digs into his auteur quiver and pulls out the superstyle moves in this take on 60s French comic series, Valérian and Laureline. Cool music, freaky aliens, not so subtle sexual undertones and even - a' la Fifth Element - flying cars.

Besson has the skill to captivate the intellect, loins and fashion sense all the same time, and while he always includes some cerebral elements, he never forgets his job is to entertain.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets stars Dane DeHaan as Valérian and belle de jour Cara Delevingne as Laureline. The cast also features Rihanna, Ethan Hawke and John Goodman and even has a cameo from jazz legend Herbie Hancock.

It will be a long wait till its release in July 2017.
