Va­le­rian And The City Of A Thou­sand Plan­ets

What’s the story? It’s set in the 28th cen­tury and fol­lows the story of Va­le­rian and Lau­re­line – two special op­er­a­tives tasked with a mis­sion to safe­guard Al­pha, a me­trop­o­lis home to species from a thou­sand plan­ets who’ve merged to­gether to share in­tel­li­gence. Directed by the in­cred­i­ble Luc Bes­son, who also mas­ter­minded The Fifth El­e­ment and Lucy. Who’s in it? Cara Delev­ingne is Sgt Lau­re­line, Dane Dehaan is Sgt Va­le­rian, and watch out for Rihanna as a shape- shift­ing alien – sounds odd; ac­tu­ally kind of mes­meris­ing. Why should I care? The ul­ti­mate girl power com­bi­na­tion of Cara and Rihanna should be enough to tempt you. But aside from that, the in­cred­i­ble graph­ics (3D fly­ing made us feel slightly queasy) and ban­ter be­tween Lau­re­line and Va­le­rian was en­joy­able. Plus Riri is in­cred­i­ble, as per.
