While it hasn’t been the box office hit that the director hoped for, Luc Besson’s latest movie has won plenty of praise for its stunning design and visuals, and looks set to be demo material for home cinemas.

The movie is getting a UK steelbook release, which will feature 2D & 3D Blu-rays.

Amazon’s listing appears to show the final artwork.

Pre-order: Amazon UK | Zavvi | HMV

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy, based on the ground-breaking comic book series which inspired a generation of artists, writers and filmmakers.

In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha—an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other. There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe. Also starring Rihanna, Clive Owen, Rutger Hauer, Kris Wu, Ethan Hawke and Herbie Hancock.

    No 4K version?

  7. Simon says:

    Shame if this doesn’t get the 4K steel treatment in the UK. After all the main praise for the film is its visuals.

  8. Coco Faber Coco Faber says:

    Is the trailer the effects or is there more?

  9. Simon says:

    Is this the 4K steelbook on Amazon UK? Doesn’t say steelbook, but is an Amazon exclusive.

  10. Simon says:

    Ok I have had it confirmed on another forum, its a 4K+2D+3D Blu-ray steelbook 🙂 Nice!

    • Tomasz says:

      Thanks mate, hope your sources are correct, just placed an order.

      • Simon says:

        I hope too.

        Also ordered, and have the 3D Steel ordered as backup. I am waiting on Amazon for conformation, but according to the forum I found about the amazon exclusive, its been confirmed twice to one member by Amazon, and they will update the listing shortly to say steelbook.

        If its not a steel, I guess It may be some kind of collectors edition, which I would prefer over a standard steel for the 4k. But as I collect steelbooks, 4K steels will always be the winner if the option is available.

      • Simon says:

        Amazon have finally updated the page to say Steelbook Yey!

  11. Tomasz says:

    Yes, your sources were spot on.
    It looks like we may have different artwork from Zavvi to the one already unveiled by Amazon.
    I guess we have to wait and see.
