"The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Dry-White"

Sneak Peek a new poster, supporting the Franco-Belgian film adaptation "Les Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec" ("The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Dry-White), a fantasy feature directed by Luc Besson ("The Messenger").

"Adèle Blanc-Sec" debuted as a comic strip in the newspaper "Sud-Ouest" in 1976, set in Paris, circa 1912, before World War I, when a 136 million year old pterodactyl egg housed in the Museum of Natural History hatches and wreaks havoc.

'Adèle Blanc-Sec', a cynical heroine, is first introduced as an author of popular fiction novels, who turns to investigative journalism as her research and subsequent adventures reveal further details of the 'mystical world' of crime.

Themes of the occult, corruption, official incompetence and the dangers of patriotism lend atmosphere to the series.
