Want to See More of Adèle Blanc-Sec?

Luc Besson’s Les Aventures Extraordinaires D’Adèle Blanc-Sec is definitely one of the most anticipated releases of 2010. It’s Indiana-Jonesish qualities, and the peculiarly French idiosyncracies that will inevitably be brought to the production by Besson and the story’s original source, it promises to set a new standard for classy supernatural-themed period adventure tales.

The Backbrain has been obsessing about it for some time, though we’re not likely to see it for a while yet. It premiered at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival on 9 April and was due to open theatrically in Belgium, France and the French-speaking region of Switzerland on 14 April, but there has been no word on a release in the English-speaking world yet (that I’ve heard of anyway).
