French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard once said that all you need for a good movie is a girl and a gun. If the trailer for Two Lovers and a Bear is any indication, Godard probably meant to say, “a girl and a polar bear,” but we’ll forgive him for not knowing this was a possibility at the time.
Director Luc Besson’s latest project is yet another sci-fi film, but unlike Lucy, this one looks a bit closer in style and tone to The Fifth Element. Based on the classic French graphic novel series, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has the potential to be quite epic, and hopefully we’ll get a better sense of what to expect when the film hits Hall H at Comic-Con later today. Until then, EuropaCorp has unveiled a new official image from the upcoming film, featuring a very determined Dane DeHaan.
One of the more intriguing upcoming blockbusters is Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (or just Valerian, for short), Luc Besson’s long-developing sci-fi film based on the classic French graphic novel series. Starring Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan as a pair of spatio-temporal agents, the futuristic new project shares some aesthetic DNA with The Fifth Element, as you can see in Besson’s collection of photos from the set.
The Weinstein Company sure did pick a clever time to release the trailer for Tulip Fever, capitalizing on today’s news of Alicia Vikander’s casting as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider reboot. The Oscar-winning actress stars in the studio’s seductive new period drama opposite Christoph Waltz and Dane DeHaan, and judging by the trailer, it looks like she’s playing a 17th century Dutch version of F—, Marry, Kill.
Just yesterday Luc Besson debuted the first promotional image for his long-developing passion project, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, teasing a fitting return to sci-fi from the director of The Fifth Element and Lucy. Today brings more official photos from the upcoming project starring Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne as a pair of time-traveling agents on a mission to protect the universe.
Between The Fifth Element and Lucy, Luc Besson has proven that he has some pretty visionary and ambitious ideas when it comes to sci-fi movies, and while they don't always work, they're never not interesting to watch. His newest sci-fi film is Valerian, a long-developing passion project based on a French graphic novel series, and today brings our first look at Besson’s latest effort.
Clive Owen. Dane DeHaan. Ethan Hawke. Noted supermodel/eyebrow possessor/Taylor Swift friend Cara Delevingne. Pop ubersongstress Rihanna. More than the lineup for the greatest night of drunken debauchery of all time, these five disparate souls have...
Chronicle made Dane DeHaan an actor to watch. Then The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ambled along and took him down a peg (or five). Thankfully, DeHaan has an actual, proper movie from an actual, proper filmmaker waiting in the wings, giving him a chance to play one of popular culture’s most enigmatic figures alongside a crop of interesting actors. We’re not entirely sold on the Life trailer, but it’s a start.
In the 1990s, Luc Besson looked like the next European director to take Hollywood by storm. Each of movies made a bigger impact in the U.S. than the one before it; La Femme Nikita, The Professional, and The Fifth Element. But just as he cracked through to the mainstream, Besson pivoted away from directing and became more of a mini-mogul, running his EuropaCorp production company and cranking out action flicks that he would often co-write and produce but not direct like District B13, Lockout, and The Transporter and Taken franchises.
It seems like we've reached peak zombie saturation in media, but it looks like the new indie comedy 'Life After Beth' is ready to revive (ha!) the genre with a new take on the subject matter. Judging by the first trailer, the new film, starring Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, and a whole cast of wonderful funny people, is going to be something pretty special.
