A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.
Immerse yourself in the world of Valerian with our guided photo gallery and the eye-popping "Director's Trademarks: A Guide to the Films of Luc Besson" original video.
At one point, Igon Siruss tells Valerian, "I will find you and I will kill you." To which Valerian whispers, "Good luck." This is nearly identical to the now iconic exchange from Taken, which was also written by Luc Besson.
So, what will it be, soldier?
In the opening scene of the movie an American Apollo and Russian Soyuz craft link up. The distance shot is of the correct two craft but the docking footage is actually from an Apollo command module looking at an Apollo lunar module.
The subtitle of this film, (City of a Thousand Planets,) is an amalgam of the titles of the first two Valerian comics, "City of Shifting Waters," and "Empire of a Thousand Planets."
