The Final Trailer for Valerian is Just Gorgeous


STX Entertainment has released the final trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.  And, oh my, is there a lot of visually impressive things going on in it:

Some musings:

  1.  Three trailers in and I know very little of the plot.  That makes me happy.
  2. I really hope this is good.  I have never read the European comics this is based on, but I understand they were very influential to The Fifth Element.
  3. Is that a slowed down orchestral Gangsta’s Paradise?  Because that…is…awesome.
  4. I’m led to believe that the two main characters are time travelers.  This often takes me out of enjoying a film as I try to comprehend timelines and physics.  I hope this doesn’t get too convoluted.
  5. There’s just so much going on in these scenes.  This one might be a flop and a financial disaster, but it appears it will be beautiful no matter what.  I, for one, hope it’s wonderful.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets arrives in theaters July 21.
