Valerian adventure film hits cinemas nationwide

Nu Metro’s Hyde Park Corner hosted the exclusive South African premiere event for the new epic fantasy adventure film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, on 20 July.

The premiere event welcomed celebrities, media and members of the public to a movie set in a universe beyond imagination. The Nu Metro Hyde Park complex was transformed into the City of a Thousand Planets, with exotic intergalactic species from the film present and themed food and decor setting the stage.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is a visually spectacular adventure based on a comic book series.

In the 28th century, Valerian, played by Dane DeHaan, and Laureline, played by Cara Delevingne, are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories.

Under assignment from the minister of defence, the pair embarks on a mission to the city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis where species from across the universe have converged to share knowledge, intelligence and culture.

A dark force at the centre of Alpha threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the menace and safeguard Alpha and the future of the universe.

The movie is currently showing in cinemas nationwide.
