    At the very top right. Looks like it might say "Korben's"... as in Korben Dallas!?

    Bruce Willis, Fifth Element!?
    Could be a fun nod... or a big easter egg spoiler.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Bruce Willis ends up making a surprise cameo.

    @bloodsnake007 @kaw I'd love it if Valerian turned out to be a sequel or existing in the same universe as FE.

    Moviepilot has a pretty nice breakdown of the similarities between the two movies. Quoted below:

    I have a feeling this is going to be a good movie but bomb at the box office and then develop a cult following 5 or so years down the road.

    If it fails at the box office, I'm afraid it's the end of Europacorp.. Apparently Besson put all the money of his company for this movie (it cost $180 million to produce, making it the most expensive independently financed movie in history and the most expensive movie in Europe of all time ^^).. so I hope it will do well !

    Is that "Gangster's Paradise" in the trailer!? :woot:

    I think this might be this year's Warcraft. Where it bombs... but then does very well in places like China.

    Just got out of a screening of this and was pleasantly surprised. This is by no means a great movie but an enjoyable one nonetheless. The visuals were very good, the cinematography was very emblematic of Besson (definitely gives you a Fifth Element vibe), and the acting was kind of one note but the characters played them out as well as could be expected. At the end of the day the film tries to bring us something more than just remakes, reboots, sequels, and Marvel/DC movies and that should be applauded. I would give this a 6.8 out of 10.
