Posted on

Less than three months after the first footage from Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets earned a standing ovation at San Diego Comic-Con, the space adventure is getting ready to blast off in New York.

EuropaCorp released a new poster and set of images on Thursday ahead of the film’s appearance at New York Comic-Con.

Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne are seen in the images and poster as the space-traveling duo Valerian and Laureline. One of the other images shows a trio of aliens known as the Doghan Daguis.

Valerian will have an interactive booth at New York Comic-Con that will feature early video footage displays, images, and props, along with a photo booth and comic book store displaying multiple issues of the classic French comic that inspired the film. Besson and illustrator Jean-Claude Mézières, who co-created the Valerian and Laureline series, will also be in attendance on Thursday for a fan meet-and-greet and autograph signing — you can find the duo from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. and 2-3 p.m. ET at the North Concourse, Booth: NC8.

Also starring Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, and John Goodman, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets hits theaters on July 21. Check out the new images and poster below, and watch Besson, DeHaan, and Delevingne discuss the film in the video above.
