Sci-fi films have always set an impressive standard for expertly-crafted special effects that create gorgeous and seemingly impossible landscapes, but the new trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets proves it might be the best yet. That should really come as no surprise, though; the film's director, Luc Besson, proved his mastery of creating complex and fantastic worlds with Fifth Element. That film is still an unending source of inspiration for future visionaries and creatives everywhere.

With the second trailer, we learn that "the city of a thousand planets," Alpha, is a society built on sharing knowledge and technology to create a peaceful world. As it goes in most films, that harmony is at risk of destruction. Cue the heroes! Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne are tapped to save the world and their buddy-buddy relationship provides plenty of humor and lots of drama. If none of that was enough to convince you, Rihanna also makes a cameo.

See it all in the new trailer below.
