    Cara Delevingne shares a video from the Valerian set via Comingsoon


    Filming continues on Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and actress Cara Delevingne has shared a new video from the set on her Instagram account. You can watch the Valerian set video below!

    Delevingne and Dane DeHaan lead the cast of the upcoming comic adaptation. Co-starring are joined by Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke, and Grammy Award winners Herbie Hancock and Rihanna.

    In the film, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner- blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him.

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

    Adapted for the screen and directed by Besson (Lucy, The Fifth Element), the film will be the most expensive film yet produced and distributed by his EuropaCorp banner. It is based on the French comic series “Valerian and Laureline” by Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières. Created in 1967, the comic has since sold over 10 million copies in 21 languages.

    Lol

    I'm mad about her mate. All my mates thinks she looks like a rat but she's a bit of me for some reason. Don't know what it is. She does look extremely hot in some photos though.

    I've only seen her in Paper towns and I only watched that because I knew she was in it. She wasn't bad but not the best either. I think she's desperately trying to be an actress when she should just stick to modelling but I'll give this a go anyway as its besson (but he's not been too great in recent years so not hoping for much) and she's in suicide squad too (but I have a feeling she's not in it a lot)

    Skeptical of Besson since I sat through Lucy :sleep: but for a cast list like Cara, Dane and Rihanna, I'll give him a second chance.

    I find her attractive too pal... think her personality and sense of humour has a lot to do with it for me though. She's the DJ for the Non-Stop-Pop radio station on GTAV... didn't even realise it was her until about a year later when a mate randomly mentioned it on mic lol.

    No worries dude... I forgot I'd even posted that lol.

    Yeah, she'd be awesome to hang about with on a night out. As a person I love her, but as an actress I think she kinda sucks... I just can't take her seriously. I think that's why her playing a DJ on GTA works so well, because she's basically just being her wacky self.
