Luc Besson, perhaps my favorite film maker (The Professional, La Femme Nikita, Fifth Element, Wasabi, etc.) since the passing of Kurosawa, has a new film coming out -- Valarian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Like Fifth Element, it's based on a French comic book, this one titled Valérian et Laureline, which ran from 1967 to 2010! In fact, Besson hired the illustrator, Jean-Claude Mézières for Fifth Element as a concept artist. Vallarian is a time agent from the 28th century, Laureline is a peasant girl from 11th century France who ends up as his partner.

The film opens in the States on July 21 and the UK on August 4. I am REALLY looking forward to this, Fifth Element is one of my favorite movies and is definitely on my Desert Island list, I suspect this one will also make that list as it looks visually stunning.
