I just saw an amazing interview with Luc Besson live on Facebook!!!!!!!!! After talking about the process they revealed the trailer of his new movie based on the comic book: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets!
Directed and written by Luc Besson (known for the Fifth Element and Lucy), the movie presents the story of a time-traveling agent, Valerian, that is sent with Laureline, his partner, to investigate a galactic empire.
Only from the trailer, we can see how beautiful this new Universe will be. The graphics are just amazing and the way the aliens are made looks so realistic. One of the main thing that captivated my attention in this teaser is definitely the relationship between Valerian and his partner. You can already see the humour and the intimacy that is linking them.
In the interview, Luc Besson said that he worked in a different way with the drawers. He opened up a contest asking for three different drawings. From there, he selected 10 people to finally reduce to 5 drawers. During a whole year, he asked them to not talk to each other in order to make them work freely and create their perceptions of the aliens and the world. He met them once a week per skype and, at the end of the first year, they met and then worked together for another year. This is the result!
