Lionsgate UK have today released a handful of images from Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets – the latest film from writer/director Luc Besson, which stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, along with Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu.

Besson based his screenplay on the French science fiction comic series “Valerian and Laureline” created by artist Jean-Claude Mézières and writer Pierre Christin, which tells the story of Valerian and Laureline, special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe.

Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara 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.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets –  started principal photography in Paris on January 6th 2016 – is scheduled to be released in the UK in 2017.
