Latest Valerian movie trailer proves Besson is back, baby
If the first trailer for Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets was meant to introduce the director’s upcoming graphic novel adaptation, the newest trailer aims to wow with its world building and the outrageous look of the movie. I’m sold. Many are calling this Besson’s spiritual Fifth Element follow-up, and it’s clear why people feel that way. The trailer is gorgeous, which means the movie itself is going to look amazing on the big screen. While most are in agreement that the visuals will stun, the same viewers are worried leads Cara Delevigne and Dane Dehaan won’t have the charisma to sell the material. Early, unfounded comparisons to flops like Jupiter Ascending and John Carter have been made, but only time will tell how Valerian fairs. Again, I’m sold, and I’ve been on team DeHaan since he first made waves in Chronicle. Fingers crossed this movie kicks ass.
