Trivia Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
There are 200 different alien species in this movie. Luc Besson wrote a 600 page book describing in details all the species. The actors had to read that book prior to filming so they can adjust their acting depending on the species they were interacting with.The first two trailers use the song 'Because' by the Beatles. It is the very first time a film director could obtain the rights for using a Beatles song in a movie advertisement. Permission was granted by Paul McCartney.The film is based on the French science fiction comics series 'Valérian and Laureline', written by Pierre Christin and illustrated by Jean-Claude Mézières.
