Luc Besson is back, and this time, he's brought a supermodel and a superstar musician to his latest creative project.

It's been 20 years since director Luc Besson presented the ground-breaking movie Fifth Element and now he's set to offer another adrenaline-filled sci-fi film. Titled Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, the new project is based on the long-running French comic Valérian and Laureline, and stars Dane DeHaan – last seen fronting Prada's menswear campaign – as Valerian, and Cara Delevingne as the heroine Laureline. The new trailer shows the two protagonists navigating through a glorious and vibrant extra-terrestrial world as they fight off alien life forms. Rihanna also makes a super quick appearance in the 90-second trailer; blink and you'll miss her.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is scheduled for release in July 2017. Meanwhile, watch the trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
