Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets was one of the most divisive films of the summer. Not only that, the sci-fi epic has currently only grossed approximately $220 million worldwide against an estimated budget of $180 million. So clearly the film has struggled in many ways — but luckily there seems to be some hope for it yet. In an interview with Italian website Bad Taste, director Luc Besson teased that a sequel is still a possibility due to the film’s growing fanbase. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that that’s enough.
“I value the Italian option. And there’s still Japan also to open. We still have a couple of countries. But so far there’s a huge, huge fanbase for Valerian. I’m very surprised. Like I receive messages every day, I mean like people screaming for Valerian 2 already. So there’s a community for sure. So it’s positive.”
Valerian the City of a Thousand Planets will be released on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD on November 21st, 2017. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
