The planet that's destroyed at the start of "Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets".
Looks like a nice place for a holiday.
And the natives look friendly!

So did I. If Besson had made two or three cast changes and changed the tone slightly it would have been as good as Fifth Element.
Was Besson able to recoup his money for this film?

According to IMDB it cost $177 million US dollars to make and it made $225 million US on the worldwide release. That's the thing I don't understand. Unless a film does well in the US it has almost no chance at a sequel.

With some exceptions success in the US Market , tends to make of break a film.

I know. It looks fantastic on my 4K screen!

If Besson had ditched the singer-alien sequence and chosen a better actor for Valerian, we'd be following the development of a sequel right now.

Its called Hollywood accounting.
How is how well the show does post-theater dependent on accounting??

It has been on television multiple times, and can still be bought/rented on platforms such as XFinity! Sorry, sir, if you don't like the movie, but it's done well.

If Hollywood says a film is flop then its flop , even if it makes money . Thats Hollywood accounting.
