Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Rooted in the classic graphic novel series, Valerian and Laureline- visionary writer/director Luc Besson advances this iconic source material into a contemporary, unique and epic science fiction saga.

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.

MOVIE REVIEW

Inventiveness doesn’t equal good. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is Luc Besson’s latest attempt to return to the glory days of the 1990’s—you know, back when he was making good movies and not sci-fi duds about creatures who shit energy bubbles and a title character who spends much of his time sexually harassing his scantily clad partner.
