New Valerian Extended Clip: 'Welcome to The City of A Thousand Planets"

Lionsgate has released a new clip from Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets, and it shows space cops Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) just entering the titular setting, Alpha, as the A.I. informs them about the city populated by 30 million beings, and 800 species. It's cool to see the variety of alien creatures and the what they can find in the various areas of the city. Other than Spider-Man: Homecoming, this is the film I'm excited to watch this month. Watch the clip below:


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.

The film also stars Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, Herbie Hancock, Kris Wu, and Rutger Hauer.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets hits theaters on July 21, 2017.
