Watch the first "Valerian" trailer featuring Rihanna

The first trailer for Luc Besson’s latest film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, has been released, with stars Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan piloting spaceships and battling monsters. And it also features… Rihanna!

The 90-second trailer is light on dialogue but shows the time-travelling agents Valerian and Laureline encountering various CGI creatures on their mission to Alpha, a 28th-century city home to thousands of different species.

To a soundtrack of the Beatles’ song Because, the trailer hints at romance between the pair, with Laureline telling Valerian: “We get on just great … you flirt, I smile,” before punching him in the face.

The film is based on a French comic first published in 1967, Valérian and Laureline. It ran for 42 years and was hailed for its humanist political ideals and developed characterisation.

Valerian’s budget of $180m makes it the most expensive French film ever produced. Besson’s adaptation is not the first, however; an animated series called Time Jam: Valerian and Laureline ran for 40 episodes on French TV from 2007 to 2008.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is scheduled for release in July 2017.
