It's a film filled with humor, charm, excitement and so many memorable images that many viewers will find themselves struggling to keep from blinking so as not to miss any of the eye-popping delights crammed into each overstuffed frame. Set in the 28th century, the film centers on Valerian Dane DeHaan and Laureline Cara Delevingne , a pair of special operatives fighting crime throughout the universe.
