"The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec" Trailer Online

In case you haven't seen it, the trailer for Luc Besson's film adaptation of Jacques Tardi's Adèle Blanc-Sec bande dessinée series is now available for your viewing pleasure right here on the inter-ma-net, and it looks all kinds of awesome (ever so slightly NSFW for a sec toward the end... COMPLETELY harmless, but enough to earn it "red band" status in this country, I'm sure):

I only know the series by reputation, as English language editions currently out of print and spendy on the after market (out-of-print booksellers are vultures, you see), but Heidi says Fantagraphics plans on releasing at least one collection later this year (which Amazon kinda-sorta corroborates... it's listed as out of print, but with a release date of 9/22/2010; so go figure), so that'll be nice.

No word on American distribution of the film yet, either, but it's a Luc Besson movie, so I have to believe we'll at least see a DVD of this before year's end.
