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.
