The fact that the film’s marketing team allowed Tara Reid to walk the red carpet is very telling of the fact that they’re trying to cast the widest net possible in their promotional efforts. “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” is a new French science fiction action film (I think that’s the first time I’ve written those words in that order) written and directed by Luc Besson and based on the French science fiction comics series “Valérian and Laureline”, written by Pierre Christin and illustrated by Jean-Claude Mézières.

The film extensive cast includes Dane DeHaan as Valerian and Cara Delevingne as Laureline, with Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, Herbie Hancock, Kris Wu and Rutger Hauer in supporting roles. Here’s more about the film:

A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe. Source

    So Cara is a big movie star, now?

    • Jahrgos

      I’m not sure “big” is correct when the movie also stars Rihanna and Herbie Hancock.

      • Drew Mcfriend

        She’s actually scored some lead roles. I wonder what actors who studied their “craft” feel about models just walking into the industry.

        • Jahrgos

          Probably the same as real models having instagram whores walk in theirs.

    • Gabbo

      If this does well enough, it looks likes she’s bagging a spot in the next Bond movie. FYI

    When Kendell is “Best in Show”, the show should close or find some new talent.

  • Amari

    Cara’s beautiful but i’m not feeling the hair. Rihanna normally looks a lot better. Kendall’s face is dead and her legs are bad.

  • Gabbo

    If you call this French sci fi, then technically Fifth Element, Lucy, and 12 Monkeys is also French sci fi, they did pretty well. I don’t think this movie will do anywhere near those, but will be gorgeous.

    • Spanglylovesheels

      Seen it yet Gabbo? I am curious rather or not I should plop down my dough to see it.

      • Gabbo

        Visually a great movie, but as a whole I would say it’s an ambitious mess and the casting is all wrong. Cara did fine, but Rihanna was by far the worst actor in this, so props to Herbie Hancock.

        Plop it on Dunkirk which was a fantastic movie and also shorter.

        • Spanglylovesheels

          I probably will see both but Dunkirk is the one I am looking forward to the most. Thanks Gabbo.

    Rhianna’s bad choices are mostly a result of not having someone like a mother or some other unpaid but friendly person to tell her no. When everyone on staff is paid by the star, no one steps up and tells the star no. They want to keep their gig.
