Les Aventures Extraordinaires D’Adèle Blanc-Sec – New poster for Luc Besson’s pulp comic book adventure
Posted by LiveFor on April 1, 2010
I think this is a great poster for the pulp stylings of Luc Besson’s adventure movie. Louise Bourgoin is Adèle Blanc-Sec and sounds like a mix of Hellboy, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Jules Verne, The Mummy and so much more. Check out the trailer.
The year is 1912. Adèle Blanc-Sec, an intrepid young reporter, will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, even sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes.
Meanwhile, in Paris, it’s panic stations! A 136 million-year-old pterodactyl egg on a shelf in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the bird subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adèle Blanc-Sec, whose adventures reveal many more extraordinary surprises…
Set in the carefree world before World War I, Adèle Blanc-Sec’s adventures see the brave young woman fearlessly battling crooks, corrupt politicians, demon worshippers and mad scientists. Legendary cartoonist Jacques Tardi’s original stories perfectly recreate the intrigue, romance and excitement of one of the most tumultuous periods in history.
The film is due out on 14th April in France.
