By

The first trailer for Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has finally been released after months of teasing, and you'll be pleased to know that it's every bit as sexy, spacey, and opera-y as it was hyped up to be. The saga follows two special governmental operatives Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne)  who are tasked by their commander to maintain order throughout the universe. However, a mission to the epic intergalactic city of Alpha proves to be more than the will-they-won't-they duo bargained for, and they're soon forced to fight for their lives and defend the human race as we know it. Also starring John Goodman, Clive Owen, and Rihanna, the film which is based off the French sci-fi graphic-novel series is set for a July 2017 release.
