Cara Delevingne Kicks Some Ass in First BTS Footage from "Valerian"
The first behind-the-scenes footage from Luc Besson's "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" is here, and it features Suicide Squad's Cara Delevingne kicking a lot of ass as Laureline, plus glimpses of Dane DeHaan's Valerian and Rihanna's mystery character:



In the footage, we see Valerian and Laureline in both civilian clothes and crazy costumes that make this look like very, very old-fashioned space opera. The first official images seem to confirm this, especially the robot, which could have come straight out of Doctor Who or the original Battlestar:

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is based on the 1967 French comic Valerian and Laureline, which, unbeknownst to many, served as an inspiration to many classic sci-fi franchises like Star Wars, Avatar, and Luc Besson's The Fifth Element. The actors stayed mum on plot details, but it sounds like it will stay true to its roots as an old-timey sci-fi adventure. Here's the official summary:

Opening quote
Rooted in the classic graphic novel series, Valerian and Laureline- visionary writer/director Luc Besson advances this iconic source material into a contemporary, unique and epic science fiction saga.

Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner- blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him.

Under directive from their Commander (Clive Owen), Valerian and Laureline embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all four corners of the universe. Alpha's seventeen million inhabitants have converged over time- uniting their talents, technology and resources for the betterment of all. Unfortunately, not everyone on Alpha shares in these same objectives; in fact, unseen forces are at work, placing our race in great danger.
Closing quote

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