The film is based on Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières’ French graphic novel series, “Valerian and Laureline”. Starring Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne as the title characters, Valerian and Laureline are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Although Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner, Laureline continuously rebuffs him due to his extensive history with women.

Under directive from their Commander (played by Clive Owen), the 2 embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all 4 corners of the universe. Alpha’s 17 million inhabitants have converged over time – uniting their talents, technology, and resources for the betterment of all. Unfortunately, not everyone on Alpha shares the same objectives; in fact, unseen forces are at work, placing our race in great danger.
