Valerian

This is going to be a eye candy bonanza, Im not sure about the story, but if the trailer is any indication I will be going to see this just for the video.

Well, it's clearly missing Milla in a very strappy piece.

Wow that sounded like real live Beatles music. That's rare.

The girl looks like Emma Stone in a wayback machine. Definitely enough there for me to give it a shot.

A first: http://io9.gizmodo.com/luc-bessons-v...s-c-1788781880

Quote:
And yes, that is the actual, honest-to-god Beatles song “Because” in the trailer. According to Besson, it’s the first time the group has ever let one of their songs be used like that, and Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr had to sign off on it personally. The director decided to use it because he and his trailer editors were looking for a song that conveyed the mood they wanted in the first teaser. They stumbled on “Because” and built the trailer around the song instead of the other way around.
Further detail: http://www.cinemablend.com/news/1583...in-the-trailer

Quote:
I just asked! We reached out to Paul McCartney, and he asked, 'What is the film?' and then he said yes! I never met him -- I wish I could, to thank him. From what I heard, he's seen a couple of my films -- and because he's from U.K. and I'm from France, we're both from Europe, so maybe a little closer. And Cara [Delevingne] is U.K. also. So there is a vibe that I think, from what I heard, made him say, 'For this one, because it's at least new and fresh.' So I think that he likes that. He likes to be part of something new.

I still think Besson has a problem articulating his stories on screen, but all his movies do look great.

Cara's great. But let's not forget the rest of the cast: Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Rutger Hauer, Clive Owen, and a few great french actors as well... Yeah ok they had me at Cara.


Visuals remind me of The Fifth Element and his somewhat recent Arthur trilogy (which was an original story from Besson)

No, I honestly have no interest in it. But yes this Cara person is something else. Not your typical beauty, I can't take my eyes off of her.

Its based off a French Comic Valerian and Laureline from the 60's. Some have said this is where Star Wars inspiration came from. After reading what its about originally I can see similarities to SW.

Went to see Ghost in the Shell tonight and they showed this latest trailer before the movie. I am definitely in to see this on its opening weekend. I'm sure I will pre-order this on UHD disc as well as this looks to be a potential visual masterpiece.

Packing a lot of sound into a small room.
268 square feet/2144 cubic feet
7.2 surround sound.

Luc Besson "In Fifth Element there were 188 special effects shots, in Valerian there were 2,734 special effects shots"

Quick synopsis fro Luc on how Valerian came to be and why Fifth Element came first. First movie Ive anticipated this much since the first Star Wars.

Isn't 2,734 pretty much the average number of FX shots in any summer movie these days, though?

You know.... that sort of statement used to mean something. Every big blockbuster type movie is a CGI cutscene from a videogame anymore.

What would impress me is if that statement were the other way around.

Well, 2734 is still up there with the most CGI-heavy productions, even by today's standards. Wonder Woman, for example, has 1800 VFX shots...

I was more along the lines of why he made Fifth Element first. Same as why Lucas made New Hope first, couldnt make the movie they wanted since technology wasnt there yet. Cameron and Avatar same thing.

He said Avatar made it possible, I do wonder how many other directors have things in the vault they were waiting to do since Luc seems to think anything is possible now.

Have we plateaued in the realm of how good a movie can be visually and audibly?

Im sure this movie is all green screen and cgi, don't care personally, just make it a stunner. It appears to be just that now gimme my nachos dawg
