Back when you could still trust Luc Besson (The Family hadn't happened, for starters, but Nikita and Leon both had) there was The Fifth Element. A movie I have somehow never seen.
The film tells the story of Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis), a 23rd century cab driver, who teams up with Leeloo (Milla Jovovich) after she literally falls into his taxi. With the planet under imminent attack from a Great Evil that appears once every 5,000 years they need to track down four mystical stones which are essential to earth's defence.
The movie also stars Gary Oldman.
Gary Oldman plays a wrong'un. Obviously.
The film's rated 7.6/10 on IMDB and 71% on Rotten Tomatoes and until The Intouchables came along a couple of years ago it was the most financially successful French film of all time.
It's screening as part of The Film World of Jean-Paul Gaultier, a season of films he has curated to run along side the exhibition of his work at the Barbican. There's only one showing hence the less than ideal start time and as the bars in the area are likely to be closing when the movie finishes the plan is to allow a longer meet up than usual before the movie. Details will be sent out to those who have RSVP'd the night before the meet.
Tickets are £9.50 and can be purchased here. At the time of my writing this about half the seats are left.
