What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - CULTURE -

DI­REC­TOR: Luc Bes­son CAST: Dane DeHaan, Cara Delev­ingne, Clive Owen, Ri­hanna After di­rect­ing 1997’s The

Fifth El­e­ment, Luc Bes­son knows how to make a sci-fi cult hit: take two space cops, Va­le­rian (Dane DeHaan) and Lau­re­line (Cara Delev­ingne), and give them ten hours to save a psy­che­delic uni­verse filled with fu­tur­is­tic fash­ion­istas and sassy aliens throw­ing shade nas­tier than the dark side of the moon. Oh, and Ri­hanna. The singer plays Bub­ble, a ‘shape-shift­ing en­ter­tainer’, which means RiRi’s role isn’t much of a stretch from her day job, but her quick-change from cabaret queen to naughty nurse is a thing of beauty.
