LES AVENTURES EXTRAORDINAIRES D’ADELE BLANC-SEC
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, panic hits the streets ! A 136 million-year 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 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. No one better suited to adapt Tardi’s legendary heroine to the big screen than Luc Besson (Arthur and the Minimoys, The Fifth Element, The Professional). Prepare yourselves for Adèle’s exhilarating, funny and fabulous adventures, a dazzling mix between Indiana Jones and Tintin, with a dash of Hellboy. With Louise Bourgoin (La fille de Monaco) as the fearless reporter. Also starring Mathieu Almaric (Quantum of Solace), Gilles Lellouche (Mesrine : Killer Instinct) and Philippe Nahon (High Tension).
