While Valerian isn’t an actual sequel to Luc Besson’s best-known work, the trailers show it has the same far future vast universe feel, with incredible aliens, gorgeous planets and advanced technology.

Valerian stars Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborn in TheAmazing Spider-Man 2) and Cara Delevingne (Enchantress in Suicide Squad) as the title characters from the comic book series Valerian and Laureline by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières. In addition the movie stars Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, Herbie Hancock, Kris Wu, and Rutger Hauer.

The studio’s marketing description is below:

Valerian And The City of a Thousand Planets is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy, based on the ground-breaking comic book series which inspired a generation of artists, writers and filmmakers.

In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha — an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other. There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.
