“Valerian” Featurette Explores Besson’s Passion

STX Entertainment has released a new featurette about Luc Besson’s upcoming mega-budget sci-fi epic “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”.

The three-minute piece goes into how the “Nikita” and “The Fifth Element” director was inspired by the French comic book source material four decades ago and now, thanks to recent cinematic advances, he’s finally able to make the movie of his dreams.

The result follows a “modern couple,” in this case 28th century enforcement agents, who travel through time and space. The film is slated to open on July 21st.
