In the 1950’s and 1960’s, many people assumed that by now, in the year 2017, we would go getting to work via flying cars. However, we’re stilling driving cars and getting stuck in traffic on the ground.

For Lexus, however, they couldn’t wait to design a flying craft and did so for the upcoming movie called “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.” Their creation is called SKYJET, a single-suit craft that was designed in a partnership with film studio EuropaCorp. Lexus recently released some new photos of the SKYJET, along with a new video that shows off the craft in action.

“Helping design and build the SKYJET allowed us to imagine mobility 700 years in the future and showcase some amazing Lexus ideas,” said Spiros Fotinos, global head of brand management and marketing at Lexus International. “This new content adds to the excitement surrounding the film’s debut, and we’re pleased to be part of this incredible and ambitious project.”

“Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” will be releasing in theaters on July 21.
