In anticipation of the upcoming sci-fi, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Lexus has launched some new videos offering a look at the movie's Lexus-branded SKYJET.

Set to arrive in 2740, we get an in-depth look at the single-seat pursuit craft driven by Valerian, the film’s main character (played by actor Dane DeHaan).

Inspired by the film’s futuristic story, the clip ad demonstrates how Lexus envisions performance, style and innovation 700 years from now.

Though its centuries into the future, the SKYJET gets Lexus' contemporary design cues, such as a futuristic adaption of the signature spindle grille.

You can see more of it in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which hits theaters July 21.
