Sorry if I'm spamming the thread, but there's only three of us and I'm on top of this sh1t at the moment.

So, Valerian, Luc Besson's long-awaited spiritual sequel to The Fifth Element... looks a BIT familiar...

(I do like that the original version of the characters are on his jacket in the pic, it's a nice touch)

But they look exactly like Mass Effect.  And as much as I'd love to see a Mass Effect movie (and how easygoing I am about sampling in creative works as long as it DOES SOMETHING INTERESTING), I hope that the movie feels more like Fifth Element.

Which is weird because the original Star Wars borrowed heavily from the Valerian books, as did The Fifth Element (with some nice additions by the no-longer-with-us Moebius).    I would hate for the uniquely funky French vision of the future to be repalced with something common and mainstream.
