Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets was a hit novel back in the 1960s. Legendary director Luc Besson, mastermind behind movies like The Fifth Element, Lucy and Leon, brings to life the story of Valerian and Laureline played by Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne.

Rihanna also makes an appearance as “Bubble,” a shapeshifting alien with incredible talents.

Director Besson and the cast dished on how incredible and humble Rihanna was on set, saying how she checked her entourage at the door, and was a focused actress.

“She asked the entourage to get out of the set and was dedicated and she acting like a real actress; she was amazing,” Besson said.

Delevingne says that she and Rihanna met five years ago and are now friends. But when she first met her she was starstruck.  Cara was really impressed with how committed Rhianna was, saying, “Watching her in this film kinda completely detach from everything and seeing her throw herself into this like she does everything, it was incredible to watch that transformation.”

DeHaan also told Hip Hollywood that he, Cara and Rihanna also went out for sushi during filming, and then flashed a grin at Cara, implying that it was a particularly good time.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets hits theaters July 21! Check out the full interview below:



Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”



Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
