“You wanna play it soft. We’ll play it soft. You wanna play it hard. Let’s play it hard.”
We’re celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Luc Besson‘s brazen, futuretastic THE FIFTH ELEMENT with a prime time screening on Sunday, June 26. (Don’t forget your multi-pass!)
Set in the the 23rd century, New York City cab driver, Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis) finds the fate of the world in his hands when an androgynous yet beautiful stranger, Leeloo. falls into his cab. As the embodiment of the fifth element, Leeloo needs to combine with the other four to keep the approaching Great Evil from destroying the world. Together with Father Vito Cornelius, and zany broadcaster Ruby Rhod, Dallas must race against time and the wicked industrialist Zorg to save humanity. Starring Milla Jovovovich, Chris Tucker, Ian Holm, and Gary Oldman.
“A movie like no other-genre defying stuff.” (Empire Magazine)
“Visually inventive and gleefully over the top, Luc Besson‘s THE FIFTH ELEMENT is a fantastic piece of pop sci-fi that never takes itself too seriously.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
