Twenty years ago, the world was introduced to The Fifth Element, Luc Besson’s outrageous and baroque science-fiction action thrill ride, starring Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Milla Jovovich and the infamous Chris Tucker. Now, in honor of the film’s 20th anniversary and well in advance of whenever in the 23rd century it’s set, the movie is coming back to theaters for a limited return engagement.
Not only is The Fifth Element turning 20, but Luc Besson has another crazy scifi thing coming out this year: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. So in an inspired bit of cross-promotional synergy, viewers of Fifth‘s theatrical return will also be treated to an exclusive preview for the newer film, which comes out this summer.
You can get more info on The Fifth Element’s 20th birthday celebration at Fathom Events here, where you can also purchase your own Multipass in advance of the film’s return shows on May 14th and 17th.
