End Credits: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Plus: The Emoji Movie

Hoping to repeat the success of his cult smash The Fifth Element, writer and director Luc Besson brings us Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Typically stylish, the slick sci-fi action romp has a vast array of creative aliens and worlds that would make Star Wars envious. Starring Dane DeHaan as Valerian and model turned actor Cara Delevingne as his sidekick Laureline, the movie is shamelessly ambitious but suffers a little from style over substance and tries to juggle too much at once.

Ever wondered what all those cute little characters you text to your friends get up to when you put your phone down? No? 🤔 Me neither, but we’re going to find out. Taking place in “Textopolis”, so far the Emoji Movie looks like the kind of 💩 that happens when producers get their hands on too much cocaine. Despite some familiar names, the gaudy smartphone comedy relies too heavily on memes and puns to force its tech-themed one liners. 👎🏼
