Promising more details on Friday, filmmaker Luc Besson has debuted the first official image of stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne from “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” his adaptation of the classic French sci-fi comic.
Created in 1967 by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières, the influential comic series follows time-traveling hero Valerian and his sidekick Laureline, who serve as guards against temporal paradoxes and then become freelance troubleshooters when their home disappears from space-time. “Valerian” has sold more than 10 million copies in 21 languages.
Also starring Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, Herbie Hancock, Rutger Hauer and Clive Owen, “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” is set to open July 21, 2017.
