Art looks pretty good, and I'm not usually a fan of these funky illustrated designs. The likeness to the actors isn't exactly spot-on, though. o_O

Yes, despite not being official poster art better-looking and more interesting than these two reveals for France and a firm favourite of the director's:-

The story goes that Luc Besson liked this fan-made poster so much that he wanted to share it (back in October 2016) as it reminded him of the French comic book series "Valerian and Laureline" by Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières first published in 1967 . . . an inspiration for STAR WARS and the inspiration for his own film:-

If final (slim chance IMO). . .

. . . with this on the back:-

Best front art (imo) would have been this (with the same back ^):-

Already have the Zavvi on pre-order, but I couldn't resist this one too. I really like Luc Besson's movies and there's so much going on in this one it takes a couple of viewings to really appreciate. I just wish that deluxe collector's edition with book and LP was available in English, but as far as I can tell from the photo it's all in French.

More than likely that cheap crappy matte finish Scanavo thinks the US craves
Flat and glossy according to steelbook.com, but it certainly wouldn't be the first time a steel didn't match its "official" description.
