Mind you, the leading lady this time's not exactly Michelle Ryan is she?  ;)
Or Claudia Cardinale...

Never a truer word spoken ;) :)

Fear not my friend. If it’s any good you can count on Hollywood to do an awful remake sooner or later ;)

If you like Adele blanc-sec don't miss other works of Tardi in similar settings,
maybe more VSF than pulp but highly recommended is Le demon des glaces
http://www.bedetheque.com/serie-3144-BD-Demon-des-glaces.html


and Adieu Brindavoine
http://www.bedetheque.com/avis-718-BD-Adieu-Brindavoine.html


Sadly i have no idea if they have been published in english :-(

The film released last week in spain, I have seen it today.
Very inspirational and fun, makes me think in 5th Element (from Besson too) fun adventures, chases, comedy, etc.
Fun but clearly not a great movie as Inception (only to mention a recent good one)

Any word on a US release?
Either in the theater or on DVD/BlyRay?

Thanks

I saw it last weekend. It was a nice pastime but nothing spectacular. No way near Indiana Jones type of quality :(

Order it on the internet. More of a period comedy than an action-adventure flick. OK, but I doubt I'll ever watch it again.

It was entertaining but I lacks some of the qualities of the comic. Lousie is a bit too Kate Moss skinny to fill the frocks of Adele, who comes across as living up to pre Great War ideals.

The corruption and occultism comes across more as a comedy rather than the dark powers they are in the comic.
