Current Movie: The Fifth Element – June 21
About This MovieMore
For one night only on June 21, The Fifth Element will screen at the Egyptian Theatre!
You have water, wind, fire, and earth. But then every five thousand years, a fifth element protects Earth from destruction. Just what is the fifth element, you ask? An orange-haired baddass named Leeloo, of course!
The Fifth Element is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Having come out out in 1997, it is one of the last really experimental and ambitious sci-fi productions before CGI took over from start to finish. It has beautiful sets, elaborate costuming, original writing, and a top-billed cast. The Fifth Element is sci-fi action at its zenith.
Been awhile? Here’s a refresher:
In the twenty-third century, the universe is threatened by evil. The only hope for mankind is the Fifth Element, who comes to Earth every five thousand years to protect the humans with four stones of the four elements: fire, water, Earth and air. A Mondoshawan spacecraft is bringing The Fifth Element back to Earth but it is destroyed by the evil Mangalores. However, a team of scientists use the DNA of the remains of the Fifth Element to rebuild the perfect being called Leeloo. She escapes from the laboratory and stumbles upon the taxi driver and former elite commando Major Korben Dallas that helps her to escape from the police. Leeloo tells him that she must meet Father Vito Cornelius to accomplish her mission. Meanwhile, the Evil uses the greedy and cruel Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg and a team of mercenary Mangalores to retrieve the stones and avoid the protection of Leeloo. But the skilled Korben Dallas has fallen in love with Leeloo and decides to help her to retrieve the stones.
