Can Valerian Save Us From Mediocre Space Operas?

    Sci-Fi epics (or space operas) are few and far between these days in popular movies. Especially when they aren’t based on a well known brand like Star Wars or Star Trek or Marvel Studios. On occasion, a fresh face will appear on the scene with mixed reviews (Avatar, Ender’s Game), or straight up awful ones, (Jupiter Ascending, John Carter).

    Enter Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Directed by The Fifth Element’s Luc Besson, the trailer promises a potentially thrilling entry and I’m hoping it begins the work of redeeming the genre; helping it to branch out beyond the known brands.

    Based on French comic series, Valérian, here’s hoping it’s not one more, mediocre popular movie.
