I can’t believe I had never heard of Adèle Blanc-Sec.

No, seriously. How did the awesomeness that is Adèle Blanc-Sec escape me all this time? This bad-ass, steampunk, female Indiana Jones is so totally amazing and I can’t believe I’ve missed out on her until now. Apparently, she first appeared in comics in 1972, but they’re all in French, so I guess I have at least a small excuse for never hearing of her.

Anyway, now they’re doing a movie. Boy howdy, are they doing a movie. Starring Louise Bourgoin and directed by Luc Besson, no less. Check out the trailer below and tell me you aren’t dying to see the film when it’s released (which will be today if you live in France). I have no idea when it will open here in the U.S., but whenever it is you can bet I’ll be dragging my husband along to the local foreign cinema. Sorry honey. But hey, I think there’ll be something in it for you, too.
