Back To The 23rd Century: 'The Fifth Element' Returns To The Big Screen

The cinematic event company Fathom Events wants to take you back to 23rd century Earth this May to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the sci-fi cult classic 'The Fifth Element', starring Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, Gary Oldman and Chris Tucker. In mid-May a new 4K restoration of the film will hit theaters across the country.

The movie stars Willis as Korben Dallas, a rugged everyman whose life is turned upside when a strange woman named Leeloo (Jovovich) crashes through the roof of his cab and enlists his help in a mission to save the universe from a primordial evil. The film is full of fantastic gadgets, satirical humor, outlandish costumes designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier and a long list of colorful characters - including Gary Oldman as the menacing Zorg and Chris Tucker, whose performance as the narcissistic radio host Ruby Rhod proved that he was more than a stoner comedy star.

The 20th anniversary screening will be introduced by director Luc Besson, who also filmed 'Léon: The Professional' (1994). Besson will reflect on 'The Fifth Element' and tee up a sneak preview of his upcoming sci-fi blockbuster 'Valerian and the City of the Thousand Planets', which is an adaptation of the French comic Valérian and Laureline. Based on the trailer, the movie (which hits theaters this July) looks like a spiritual sequel to 'Fifth Element.' Check it out.

Lawmakers in Quebec failed to pass a bill that would have increased the minimum age for purchasing and consuming cannabis from 18 to 21 before the end of the legislative session. When the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) was elected to power in Quebec last year, they brought with them a promise to raise the legal age for buying and consuming recreational cannabis. Right now, anyone 18 or older can legally purchase cannabis in Quebec, which is tied with Alberta for having the lowest legal age for recreational cannabis.
