There's a lot of blank white space on this poster for 2017’s Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, which makes it all the more impressive that the marketing team was able to slot in a rather nifty little easter egg.

Shift your gaze away from the eclectic cast of characters squashed inside the giant letter "V", and look at the top-right corner of the image. There, you'll see a potato-looking alien whose head is partially obscuring a word, which looks like it reads "Korben's."

But why is that significant? Well, Valerian director Luc Besson helmed The Fifth Element in 1997, a weird sci-fi adventure starring Bruce Willis and Milla Jovovich. In the film, Willis plays a character called Korben Dallas, a futuristic taxi driver.

So, the word "Korben's" on the Valerian poster is a nice way of referencing the director's most famous - and arguably his best - movie.
