Les Aventures Extraordinaires D’Adèle Blanc-Sec

Les Aventures Extraordinaires D’Adèle Blanc-Sec

Or The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec is the latest film from French director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Leon: The Professional, Nikita).

It’s been awhile since Besson has directed a film. He’s written at least 40 movies and produced over 80 but only directed just over 10.

This film is based on famed French comic creator Jacques Tardi. There have been at least 9 volumes so far although there hasn’t been an English adapation since the early 90’s. Dark Horse Comics had reprinted them in an anthology series called Cheval Noir which has been out of print for decades and NBM had collected a couple of them in the mid-1990’s but those too are out of print.

Still the film looks very cool. No idea if and when it will reach North America though.
