Blue-eyed babes Daan De Haan (A Cure for Wellness, Spiderman 2) and Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns) are here to round up some space baddies in the poster for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. They’re the guardians of the galaxy, sans talking trees and animals.
Based off the popular French comic series Valérian and Laureline, it stars two agents in the 28th century who jump through the usual hoops of space and time while the universe stays in an almost perfect utopia. As they head towards Alpha, the melting pot of science, knowledge and culture, they uncover a dark force that subverts the peaceful existence that has never been threatened until now.
Ethan Hawke (who previously starred in space film Gattaca) and Rutger Hauer (the lead replicant in Blade Runner) are also on board, so you know this one’s shooting for the moon. With glorious scenery that almost resembles the cosmopolitan more than the cosmos, we’re seeing a future that almost seems plausible in this lifetime.
Take us there, we’re ready!
