Are you ready for the sci-fi movie of your dreams? The first trailer for ‘Valerian & The City of a Thousands Planets’ was released on Nov. 10, and it’s an epic adventure that’s out of this world! Click to WATCH!
Dane DeHaan, 30, and Cara Delevingne, 23, play Valerian and Laureline, adventurers from the 28th century who are sent to investigate a galactic empire that’s being threatened with extinction. In the trailer, they fight for their lives against creatures out of your wildest dreams.
There’s definitely a lot of sexual tension between Valerian and Laureline. “We get on just great,” Laureline says as the trailer flashes to a scene of the two characters on the beach. “You flirt. I smile.” It’s a love-hate relationship between them. Valerian tries to kiss Laureline, and she punches him in the face.
The movie is based on the ’60s Gallic comic series. The first trailer looks like a mix of The Fifth Element and Guardians of the Galaxy. It looks incredible. Rihanna, 28, Ethan Hawke, 45, John Goodman, 64, and Clive Owen, 51, also star in the movie. Valerian is Rihanna’s first live-action movie since 2014’s Annie. She makes a brief appearance in trailer, transforming into a blonde bombshell before Valerian’s eyes.
“Rihanna was my first wish,” director told Entertainment Weekly. “First, because of her voice and the way she smiles and looks and how she expresses herself. Second, because you know she won’t be intimidated on the set. She plays stadiums with 100,000 people. You know that girl isn’t shy about the camera and the crew and all this.”
Over the past few months, Cara has posted a number of behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Valerian. In the days leading up to the trailer’s premiere, the cast has been posting super short snippets and photos. Get ready to go to a galaxy far, far away — but not that galaxy! Valerian & The City of a Thousand Planets will hit theaters in summer 2017.
