According to Deadline, STXfilms and EuropaCorp have revealed plans to show off the opening sequence of Luc Besson’s sci-fi epic Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets ahead of some 3D and PLF showings of Spider-Man Homecoming, starting Thursday, July 6.
The scene in question features the creation of the Space Station Alpha. This will occur in theaters that are a part of chains including AMC, B&B Theaters, Cinemark, Emagine Entertainment and Harkins Theaters, in addition to select regional circuits.
In addition to the announcement, STX dropped a new clip from Valerian that features Dane DeHaan’s Valerian and Cara Delevingne’s Laureline arriving at Space Station Alpha as they attempt to fight off an attack by a threat attempting to destroy the cosmic locale.
Take a look at the latest Valerian clip below.
Based on the French comic Valerian and Laureline by Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières, Besson’s Valerian film follows government operatives Valerian (DeHaan) and Laureline (Delevingne), who work to maintain order in the universe. As per request from their Commander (Owen), the duo head to the intergalactic — and seemingly peaceful — city of Alpha, where they investigate a hidden conflict brewing among its seventeen million alien inhabitants.
Opening July 21, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets stars Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu.
