Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets isn’t quite a return to sci-fi for Luc Besson, as his last feature film, Lucy, was also in the genre. But Lucy didn’t share much in common with The Fifth Element, Besson’s 1997 hit. Valerian, his new movie and his biggest picture to date, seems to be more in the same mold as The Fifth Element. The sci-fi project stars Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevigne, Clive Owen, John Goodman, and more, and it’s shooting right now. Get a look at some behind-the-scenes photos after the jump.

Suicide Squad isn’t actually in theaters for another nine months, but you wouldn’t know that from the onslaught of promotional material flooding the web this week. Say what you will about the film itself, but the Suicide Squad marketing team clearly isn’t one for procrastinating.

Forget the Avengers, the Justice League, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men. Cinema’s most tight-knit superpowered crew is the cast of Suicide Squad, as evidenced by the fact that the actors have elected to give each other matching “SKWAD” tattoos. Not get matching tattoos, like from a tattoo parlor — actually give them to each other.

One of the buzziest trailers to come out of this year’s Comic-Con was Suicide Squad. As Russ put it, the footage teased “a viciously detailed film, with a real eye for keeping things grim and weird.” It won the interest of fans and non-fans alike. Which is all well and good for Warner Bros. — but if you fall into the latter category, you might’ve found yourself as confused by the trailer as you were intrigued.
While characters like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are familiar to just about everyone on the known planet, that’s definitely not the case with Suicide Squad. Fortunately, with over a year to go until the film’s release, there’s plenty of room to get your bearings, and with our help you’ll be caught up in no time at all. Hit the jump for our rundown of the Suicide Squad characters. Read More »
Fox 2000 Pictures has released a new trailer for Paper Towns, the new mystery romantic drama following a young man and his friends who go on the “road trip of their lives to find the missing girl next door.” I’m mainly interested in this film because it was written by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber, the screenwriters behind (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now. I also enjoyed director Jake Schreier‘s first feature Robot & Frank when I caught it at Sundance a few years back.

Luc Besson, coming off the surprise smash Lucy, is preparing to adapt a long-running and influential set of Belgian science fiction stories co-created by one of his visual designers on The Fifth Element. The Valérian and Laureline stories feature a pair of galactic adventurers on wide-ranging missions across space and time. The two characters debuted in 1967 in comics by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres, the latter of whom ended up working on The Fifth Element. Besson has planned to make a film adapting the comics for the past couple years, and now he’s in position to move forward.
So Besson will write and direct his Valérian and Laureline movie — called Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, with Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne starring in the lead roles. Read More »
