Luc Besson Takes Us to Another World in 'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets'

Luc Besson is nothing if not an interesting director. His movies range from Nikita to The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy, so him taking on this epic sic-fi story based on the graphic novel is reason enough for me to look forward to it. I guarantee you that even if it doesn't work completely, there will be things in this to like, and the last thing you will be able to say about it is that it's formulaic or studio driven. It's not even a Hollywood movie, since no studio would green light this- it's actually a French film. I'm in.
