If you've got a taste for Indiana Jones adventure mixed with a good dose of Mummy madness and shaken with a little bit of The Perils of Pauline, then Luc Besson's The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec is the perfect dish! Get a first look at the action-packed trailer...
Besson (The Fifth Element) is back in the director's chair for this entertaining, action-packed fantasy flick based on Jacques Tardi's celebrated French classic comic book series. Set in 1912, the story tracks intrepid young reporter Adèle Blanc-Sec (Louise Bourgoin) and her quest for the power of life over death -- a journey that takes her to distant and exotic lands, where she faces many dangers beneath the Egyptian sands. Meanwhile in Paris, a 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg on display at the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and it's up to Adele to take on the terror in the skies.
The film also stars familiar faces Mathieu Amalric, Gilles Lellouche, Jean-Paul Rouve, Jacky Nercessian and Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre.
Look for The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec on Blu-ray Combo Pack in stores everywhere August 13 from Shout! Factory, in collaboration with EuropaCorp.
