Could Luc Besson's comeback vehicle be "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets"?






This looks visually stunning, but what else do you expect from Luc Besson?

Besson directed "Nikita," "Leon," and "The Fifth Element" back to back to back between 1990-1997. Fine. Those three films alone have allowed him to have enough creative freedom to direct whatever he wanted after those. Problem is the ensuing films weren't very good ("The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc," "Angel-A," "Arthur and the Invisibles," "The Family). He made somewhat of a comeback in 2014 with the underrated "Lucy," so I am cautiously optimistic this new film "Valerian" might turn out OK, but not holding my breath.

This does have an impressive cast: Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke.

“Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets” opens on July 21st.
