Feels kind of meh, there's such a thing as too much strange/cool/weird, try and make people drink from a firehose of it and it becomes just noise.

I have some faith, in that it's the same director as the Fifth Element, Luc Besson. The Fifth Element was also very ambitious with character design and effects, but IMO not only played out very well but also aged well. Besson's strength seems to be building strange worlds with relatable characters in them.

I bet he has a bunch of witty, self-depricating quips!"

I still think it looks cool as hell.

That's going to bomb so hard.

Budget of €197M, or $221M USD.

Cloud Atlas for comparison had a budget of $128.5M USD and made $130.5M.
Jupiter Ascending had a budget of $176M and made $184M.

I suspect those budgets don't include the advertising either.

Luc Besson was responsible for directing, screenwriting, and producing "Lucy", which made over $400 million on a $40 million budget. The studios are obviously giving him a lot of rope as a result.

I agree the potential for this to be another Jupiter Ascending is pretty big. I'd say that Cloud Atlas was it's own pretentious kettle of fish though. Jupiter Ascending was also kind of weird and bad. Good word of mouth could save this film.

The Fifth Element did triple it's budget and make about $270 million, which is probably closer to $400 million in today's dollars. Another thing to consider is that the European audience is likely to be bigger here, due to the Besson's previous successes in the EU.

anyone else start doing the words to Gangster's Paradise while watching that trailer because the sound track sounds like it.

Second do they issue you a joystick when you buy a ticket because it looks like a collision of about 20 video games.

I did Amish Paradise. What does that say about me?

I think the movie will likely bomb financially but is going to be a good. Lucy did well financially because of Scarlett Johansson. Visually it was amazing but the story was pretty flat.

If you don't triple your production/marketing costs these days you can be panned as a flop. That's a lot of money for a film like this to make.

I was wondering if anyone else heard that because all I was thinking while watching the trailer was "is that coolio?"

Cloud Atlas was a strange cat of a film, Jupiter Ascending was genuinely terrible.

I was thinking the exact same thing except: I thought Coolio was dead.

There was no saving his hairline. His career? I cant comment on that.

Personally I'm pretty excited for Valerian. They're (at times) great comics, and have been very influential in scifi.

The storylines are quite out there sometimes though, "Empire of a Thousand Planets" (I have no idea why they translated it as 'city') is nothing compared to the one where they meet God for example

I would expect they have big hopes for the European market, as the comics are a lot better known here than in NA (I think?).
