Luc Besson’s ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ has completely flopped at the box office.
With a production budget of around $177 million, the latest project by the acclaimed director Luc Besson has flopped at the box office. Known for films such as ‘The Fifth Element’ and ‘Leon: The Professional’ Besson was looking to create another classic film in his flourishing filmography, however, it seems that he has not succeeded as of yet. The film managed to only get around $18 million in the three days it was opened for and did not even compare to the likes of Dunkirk in terms of revenue.
However, the film is still being released around the world and will be released in the UK on the 2nd of August. Besson will be hoping the film does well worldwide after it flopped in the US. Rihanna and Carla Delevigne have been cast for the film, however, did not seem to succeed in creating enough hype for the film.
