Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Poster

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.


  • The Boulan Bathor from planet Goara have developed a society centered on food and gastronomic arts. To keep their palates stimulated, they have become experts in transforming their homegrown produce into feasts. The alphas of the species have ambitions and a sense of entitlement that complement their business sense. They use their economic influence to ensure that the right political decisions are made, particularly in terms of preserving their monopoly and elitism.
  • Dane DeHaan in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)
  • Megaptors (AKA the "Kirian Devils") are reptilian creatures from the planet Kirian in Dimension 2. They are carnivores protected by an impervious carapace of scales and have claws which can slice the most resistant metals. They're also able to disconnect their nerve endings while chasing prey, making them insensitive to pain and fatigue.
  • Bromosaurs are enormous creatures that graze on the seabed of their native planet, Blaafarn. Their respiratory system filters water and expels it in purified form from an orifice on top of its head, a trait that attracts the Mylea jellyfish, a fragile animal with sensorial powers. The Mylea attaches to the Bromosaurs to rely on the purified water; in return, the Myleas' ability to read minds enables Bromosaurs to communicate with one another as if they are logged onto a computer network. The species have lived in harmony for centuries.
