A lifetime of sci-fi and literary appreciation, nearly four decades of filmic output, two (maybe) scripts, well over $180 million dollars and almost 15 times the visual shots used in his 1997 sci-fi, The Fifth Element, director Luc Besson now has something meaty to present the summer moviegoing crowd in Valerian: The City Of A Thousand Planets. His latest interview with Deadline gives a greater scope at the strain he now faces in comparison to his previous work and especially in the wake of technological advancements in filmmaking, notably sampled in James Cameron's 2009 hit, Avatar, and so it's worth reading in my opinion.

For now, however, we have the final trailer in our midst this week ahead of the film's July 7 release. Actress Cara Delevingne and actor Dane Dehaan make way as interstellar space agents who journey to a bustling space metropolis to investigate a looming threat that could also gravely affect the universe. Also starring are Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, Herbie Hancock and the incomparable Rutger Hauer to help fill in the blanks...and with a career like Besson's it's worth wondering why Gary Oldman isn't in this one! Give me an odd-haired, eccentric pill-popping lunatic space villain from Oldman anyday, I say. Oh well.

Enjoy the new Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets trailer below, and hell, I say go and it. We could always endulge in some new sci-fi.
