Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Walks a Weird Tightrope

I don’t know if you’ve heard about this movie, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Based on the trailer, it looks like it’s going to be pretty insane.

Normally, I’d write this movie off as too insane. Like another Jupiter Ascending, it just looks like more crazy space nonsense.

But! It’s directed by Luc Besson, the genius behind The Fifth Element! From the outside, The Fifth Element also looks like crazy space nonsense, but obviously its one of the greatest movies of all time. So can he make lightning strike twice? Can he make another amazing space nonsense movie?

Also, is anyone else a little confused why ‘Valerian’ gets his name in the title, while his female partner, Laureline, seems just as much a star? Just sayin’.
