valerian and the thousand planets posterValerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has gotten some seriously good buzz at film fests. I’ve thought it was pretty groovy.  And now it’s waaaaay groovy; they’ve scored the rights to use “Because” by The Beatles in this new trailer!  Why the exclamation point?  Because it’s the first time a film has gotten the okay to use an original recording by The Beatles in a movie trailer.  Pretty cool.  And so’s the mind-bending alien action in this trailer.  Synopsis!
