Luc Besson’s return to the epic fantasy/sci-fi genre (his last was Fifth Element) could be Jupiter Ascending or Guardians of the Galaxy. If you get our drift. Only time will tell.
Until then, however, we have this new look at his current effort — VALERIAN. Based on the Belgian comicbook of a similar name, the storyline spins grand time-travel based adventures set in a fantastical science fiction universe. We love our aliens and this will have those in spades.
Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and his partner Laureline (Cara Delevingne) travel the universe and time, doing their best to solve problems and get paid. The little I’ve read of the books has me cautiously intrigued and for those of us that celebrate strong female characters, there should be plenty to like about this.
