Welcome to Alpha, the city of a thousand plants where various species have shared their knowledge & intelligence for hundreds of years to create a paradise. A paradise that is in danger.
That is the central premise established in the all-new official trailer for Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, a adaptation of the French science fiction comic Valerian and Laureline.
In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha—an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other. There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.
Valaerian and the City of a Thousand Planets stars DeHaan, Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock, Kris Wu and opens on July 21, 2017.
