We had featured the first trailer for this film quite some time back. It was finlled with some really cool characters. The film is directed by Luc Besson with his endless string of writing and producing projects. His last film From Paris with Love was just horrible.

Now here is the next teaser trailer from The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc Sec. This looks really cool but does Luc still have what it takes to make something great.

The film feels like a Indiana Jones type film but this time around with a woman. It is the first time we get to see Louise Bourgoin in motion as Adele, the young journalist heroine of Jacques Tardi’s comic strip that forms the basis for the movie. Bourgoin looks fantastic, and Besson’s collection of mummies, creatures and exaggerated supporting characters all look fun and just dangerous enough.

The production design looks really fine and it was also showcased in the first teaser trailer. This is Paris in an alternative World War I reality. Here is a small synopsis via Wikipedia.

The adventures, set in Paris in the years before and after World War I, revolve around the protagonist Adèle Blanc-Sec. A cynical heroine, she is initially a novelist of popular fiction, who turns to investigative journalism as her research and subsequent adventures reveal further details of the mystical world of crime. Themes of the occult, corruption, official incompetence, and the dangers of patriotism suffuse the series.
