If your a massive fan of comic book movies you may want to take not of this one The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec the new period drama action adventure from Luc Besson. Our good friends at Optimum Releasing are bringing this movie to the UK cinemas this month and they sent us over the weekend the UK trailer and checkit out below!
“This is the story of Adèle Blanc-Sec and her quest for the power of life over death.”
Based on the Jacques Tardi French-Belgium comic book which stars Louise Bourgoin as Adèle Blanc-Sec a turn of the century adventurer(ala 1912) you could say female Indiana Jones or “an intrepid young reporter” who will go to any lengths to get her story. She goes to Egypt to take on the mummys, back in Paris having Jurassic troubles with dinosaurs especially a pterodactyl. If you can put aside subtitled reservations this movie looks an exciting fantasy adventure which has plenty of mystery, steampunk adventures to keep you excited plus it is a Luc Besson film!
The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec will get a cinematic release on April 22nd, no word yet for American release, the movie also stars Mathieu Amalric (Munich, Quantam of Solace, Mesrine).
The year is 1912. Adèle Blanc-Sec, an intrepid young reporter, will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes. Meanwhile, in Paris, it’s panic stations! A 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg on a shelf in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the bird subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adèle Blanc-Sec, whose adventures reveal many more extraordinary surprises…
One thought on “Watch The UK Trailer For Luc Besson’s The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec”
It’s hard to see what the target audience for this film should be. Sometimes it is all so silly that you could be forgiven to think this is one for the kids, and yet the use of the voice over and the actual structure of the story both seem to aim at a much more mature type of audience (and let’s not even mention the completely gratuitous nudity, which is just baffling and really pointless).
In the end it is very hard to take any of that seriously or to care for any of the characters.
I’m afraid it’s just style over substance…
