The sentiment around the interweb today, is that Luc Besson’s latest, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets could be the next Fifth Element, or another Jupiter Rising. After seeing this trailer, I’m really hoping for the former. It’s been a while since we got a good, all-out sci-fi adventure, and it doesn’t look like Besson is holding back on this one, which is a lifelong passion project of his. From the intricate world building, to the massive scope, I need this to be good – it’s certainly going to be a visual feast.

What do you all think? The film hits theatres July 21.
