Director Luc Besson narrates a sequence from “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” in this video clip by the The New York Times.
The science-fiction “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” starring Dane DeHaan in the title role, has moments of blissful calm. This scene isn’t one of them. Here, Valerian is on a mission to catch up with some alien characters quickly. The fastest way to get to them is to burst through a wall as well as many of the worlds in the metropolis of Alpha (the city of the title).
