From its opening scenes in 1914 Egypt to its towering views of 23rd Century New York City, and its mind-expanding journey to the faraway world of Fhloston Paradise, “The Fifth Element” follows cab driver Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis) as he discovers that the fate of the world is contained within the mysterious Leeloo (Milla Jovovich), who literally drops from the sky and into his life. To save humanity, he must protect her from the evil industrialist Zorg (Gary Oldman), who is embroiled in an intergalactic war between the Mondoshawans and the Mangalores.
The event will also feature a brand-new, exclusive look at Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets which opens in theaters nationwide July 21, 2017 with Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne starring. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is proudly following suit with 4K Ultra HD on July 11.
