The original comics have had a huge impact on the development of cinema. It is known that some scenes of the space saga "Star Wars" almost literally quoted the famous graphic novel.

According to Besson , the long-awaited filming of " Valerian " will start in December, and the sci-fi movie will be released in 2017. Dane DeHaan ("The Amazing Spider-Man: High Voltage") and Cara Delevingne ("Anna Karenina") received the leading roles in the film.
