Luc Besson Mixes “Sugar And Spice” With Sci-Fi Epic ‘Valerian’

The good news is the picture, a beautiful blend of visual spectacle and story, is a must see in 3D. Amidst all the immersive special effects and production design lies the top notch work delivered by Cara Delevigne who plays the confident and responsible heroine Laureline. Valerian (DeHaan) is an entirely different beast, as he has a bit of a devil may care attitude while also a wonderful working partner to Laureline (Valerian is also madly in love with her). “I really wanted to have this tiny story of this real couple in this totally amazing story in space,” said Besson. “It’s very real in (a world) that is not. I want the salt and sugar in the same story” While a prospective romance is a huge element of the film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is also a feast for the eyes.

Cara Delevigne Explores ‘Valerian’ Space Odyssey In The City of Lights

There are many benefits to working on a Luc Besson film.

Along with his eye-popping action sequences, Besson is also known for having strong heroines in his work (Leon, La Femme Nikita, Lucy), and Cara Delevigne is yet another addition to that list with her charismatic performance in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Since she and Valerian co-star Dane DeHaan have different approaches to acting, the pair were able to learn from one another. “I kind of reminded Dane on how to laugh and to keep it fun and light,” said Delevigne. “We were so lucky on set. We got to have five day weeks we don’t get to do night shoots so we got to have a lot of spare time to explore the movie, the characters, but also Paris as well.” Click on the media bar to hear Delevigne talk about how she was inspired by DeHaan’s work ethic: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, co-starring Clive Owen and Rihanna, opens nationwide July 21.

Well, there’s nothing that plays after the end credits roll! Here’s a synopsis of the film: Valerian (DeHaan) and Laureline (Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner- blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him. Under directive from their Commander (Clive Owen), Valerian and Laureline embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all four corners of the universe. Alpha’s seventeen million inhabitants have converged over time- uniting their talents, technology and resources for the betterment of all. Unfortunately, not everyone on Alpha shares in these same objectives; in fact, unseen forces are at work, placing our race in great danger. Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu also star. Be sure to check it out!.....»»
