Blu ray update of the week! We have some great picks out there for you guys today!
Opening this week is French director Luc Besson’s latest film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. The $180 million dollar sci-fi epic is both the highest budgeted independent and French film of all-time. While the title is unfamiliar to the casual movie goer in North America, the film is actually based off of a 50 year old French comic book. On the surface, it would seem strange for Besson to follow up his previous film, the international Scarlett Johansson hit Lucy, with a sci-fi film, but this kind of genre hopping has been a staple of Luc Besson’s career.
Oscar history was made last night during the finale of The 89th Academy Awards ceremony. If you’ve been off social media for the past 24 hours or somehow missed last night’s chaotic finale, then you would be unaware that two movies won Best Picture! Except in the end there was actually only one victor . . .Moonlight!
