First Valerian Movie Trailer Released

Today we saw the online release of the first trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Looking at the trailer for the upcoming Valerian movie, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing too much in the way of real life actors or sets. I’m not sure if even Avatar had as much CGI as we are seeing in this trailer.

Do you want the good or the bad first? Let’s go with good. The CGI effects look great. The character designs are nice, and the animation looks on point. The bad? Practical effects creators are probably weeping.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is based on the very long running French comic strip Valerian and Laureline. The strip has been running since 1967!

The film stars Cara Delevigne and Dane DeHaan as a team that is charged with… I’m not really sure. The trailer doesn’t really provide much in the form of a plot, but it certainly looks action packed!

Is it just me or do the stars of this film appear to be about 12 years old? Perhaps the film makers are planning on a movie franchise that runs as long as the comic strip?

Also starring Clive Owen, Rihanna,Ethan Hawk, the always great John Goodman, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu, the movie will hit theaters July 21, 2017.
