    Legendary sci-fi director Luc Besson revealed Tuesday he has been thinking about making his latest film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets since he was 10.

     

    The 58-year-old French auteur has made a string of iconic hits Womens Fernando Valenzuela Jersey , including The Fifth Element, Leon: The Professional, Lucy and Nikita.

     

    But he said his upcoming movie has been a passion project since he began reading the serialized 1960s comics from Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres on which it is based.

     

    "There was no Internet, no YouTube, nothing and you had to wait a week to get two more pages Womens Sandy Koufax Jersey ," he told delegates at the CinemaCon gathering of movie theater operators in Las Vegas.

     

    "I got totally addicted... It was so cool at the time, really new and I never stopped thinking about it."

     

    Besson believed a movie based on a comic about just two human characters and 1,000 aliens would be impossible, he told the audience at Caesar's Palace.

     

    "But then this gentleman, this young director James Cameron - you've heard of him? - he just made these techniques possible after Avatar. Thanks to him now Womens Maury Wills Jersey , the imagination is the limit," Besson added.

     

    The $180 million Valerian - which comes out on July 21 - centers on a dark force threatening Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets.

     

    Blacks ops agents Valerian (Dean DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard the universe.

     

    The audience was treated to a new trailer, a surreal but self-aware fever dream in vivid 3D featuring a huge, drooling CGI dog-like monster that rips a bus apart Womens Kirk Gibson Jersey , as well of plenty of large Zen-like aliens and desert vistas with echoes of Mad Max.

    BEIJING, May 19 (Xinhua) -- In the name of making peace in the Middle East, Washington has in recent decades seen its strategies towards the most troubled part of the world go under one after another. Some even backfired.

     

    On Friday, the new president in Washington is setting out on his first foreign trip, during which he will visit Saudi Arabia and Israel Womens Babe Herman Jersey , two of America's traditional allies in the region.

     

    Perhaps, the moment Trump sets foot on the sun-scorched soil in the Gulf area, he will find the problems he has inherited are equally sizzling, if not more.

     

    In Saudi Arabia, Trump is going to deliver a speech on Islam Womens Yasiel Puig Jersey , seeking to, according to U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, "unite the broader Muslim world against common enemies of all civilizations and to demonstrate America's commitment to our Muslim partners."

     

    That would easily remind people of the speech given by former U.S. President Barack Obama during his visit to Egypt in June 2009, in which he intended to reset America's relations with the Arab world. But he failed.

     

    The top priority for Trump this time is to seek support from the Riyadh-led Gulf countries to fight the Islamic State militant group, a promise he made while campaigning for president Womens Cody Bellinger Jersey , and to reassure Saudi Arabia's royal court that feels betrayed by the Obama administration's landmark nuclear deal reached with Iran in July 2015 and putting Tehran's nuclear program on hold for at least a decade.

     

    Trump has been a consistent critic of the deal. He has described it as a "disaster," criticized the Iranians for not living up to the spirit of the deal and threatened to rip it apart.

     

    The Saudis and the Israelis love to hear Trump's blistering anti-Iran rhetoric. Yet, it should be heeded that terminating the agreement would generate far more serious problems than it can solve.

     

    If the Trump administration dismantles the deal, Iran would be set free to resurrect its nuclear program. That would further obscure the regional geo-political and security situation, and pose a serious threat to the international nuclear non-proliferation regime.

     

    Recent signs from Washington suggest that the U.S. government has shown some prudence on this issue. Though the White House has continued to sanction Iran's missile activities Womens Corey Seager Jersey , it has waived some nuclear-related sanctions under the deal, and pledged it will go on to abide by the agreements.

     

    In Saudi Arabia, Trump is also going to announce a major weapons sales deal worth more than 100 billion U.S. dollars. Such a titanic package would no doubt unsettle Iran, motivate it to have an arms race, and harm the strategic balance in the region.

     

    The deadlocked peace process between Israel and Palestine is also very likely to be Trump's big headache in the Middle East.

     

    Though the U.S. leader has vowed to help push a deal between the two sides Womens Chris Taylor Jersey , he has yet to embrace the two-state solution that is considered so far to be the most fundamental principle that has proved vital to any possible peace deal.

     

    Also, it remains unclear how Trump could persuade the two sides to make concessions on a number of thorny issues, including the 1967 border, the construction of settlements and the return of Palestinian refugees, that have blocked the peace process for so long.

     

    Like all his recent predecessors who intended to reshape the region Womens Jackie Robinson Jersey , Trump now appears to be equally ambitious. Yet, ambitions without caution in the region could mean more wars and further bloodletting, a lesson Trump needs to note in the Middle East doctrine of his own brand that is still in the making.
