The first footage from Luc Besson‘s scifi adaptation, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, was shown in Hall H at Comic-Con today.
Five different scenes were shown, and were later described as ‘dazzling’ by attendees. The clips featured Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, and Ethan Hawke in action.
Spinoff Online has a summary of each of the scenes. Here’s one. (Below, you’ll find a link to read more.)
Scene 183: The second sequence focuses on Cara Delivigne’s Laureline, dressed in the busty armor that hit a few weeks back. She’s strolling down the hall of a sleek space station. But her casual nature is contrasted by two green-uniformed guards, flanking her shoulders. Ahead of her, three short, vermin-looking aliens pass by in an intersecting hallway. Tossing her head to the side with a smirk and a bit of Deliggne’s signature side-eye, Laureline taunts, “Don’t you think you should handcuff me?” The guards silently agree, rushing to cuff their apparent prisoner. But Laureline is too quick for them.
In the blink of an eye, she spins into full-fight mode, taking on both men in lighting-fast hand-to-hand combat. Before you can say, “Leeloo Dallas Multi-pass,” these dudly dudes are down, knocked out, handcuffed, eating Laureline’s dust. In the next shot, she steps in front of the aforementioned alien trio, aiming a gun at them, and stopping them in their tracks before stating simply, “We need to talk.”
