Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets movie quotes help tell the story of the film about two young adults tasked with saving the future of the universe. The science fiction movie was written and directed by Luc Besson based on the French graphic novel Valérian and Laureline by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets opened theatrically in the United States on July 21, 2017.
In Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, peace officers Major Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Sergeant Laureline (Cara Delevingne) work as partners to help protect the universe in the 28th century. So when they learn that Alpha, a city full of creatures from a thousand different planets, is under attack, they are called in to help.
On orders of the Defense Minister (Herbie Hancock) and Commander Arün Filitt (Clive Owen), Valerian and Laureline need to find the mysterious force that is spreading a toxic infection across Alpha. But while they're doing so, they also face attacks from humanoids who are also threatening Alpha. This leaves Valerian and Laureline in a place where they and they alone must fend off these threats to save the future of the universe.
Find the Threat and Eliminate It
Arün Filitt: Agents Valerian and Laureline, you have less than 10 hours to find the threat and eliminate it.
Sergeant Laureline: Time to get to work.
Commander Filitt explains the mission to Valerian and Laureine, which they happily accept. Something is spreading a toxic infection around their station and the pair need to find it and kill it.
Guardians of Our Future
Alpha Leader: We need the two of you to be the guardians of our future.
Like any leader of an international space station would do, the Alpha Leader asks young adults Valerian and Laureline to become guardians of their future. Surely there must be someone else, perhaps with more experience, available, right?
We're a Team
Defense Minister: This mission is a simple in and out. Agent Valerian, you’ll be running solo.
Major Valerian: I only work with my partner.
Sergeant Laureline: Hi.
Major Valerian: We’re a team.
When the Defense Minister tells Major Valerian that his mission is a solo one, Valerian doesn't accept that order. As he mentions in these Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets movie quotes, he and Laureline work as a team.
20 Minutes Late
Defense Minister: You’re running nearly 20 minutes late.
Major Valerian: Yeah, well time flies when you’re having fun.
The Defense Minister isn't too happy when Major Valerian shows up 20 minutes late. He also isn't amused when Valerian gives a cliche teen excuse for the tardiness.
