As scheduled, Yahoo! France has premiered the trailer for Luc Besson's Les Aventures Extraordinaires D'Adèle Blanc-Sec, a serial-inspired action-adventure that stars the beautiful Louise Bourgoin in the title role.  Here's a recap on the synopsis incase your not up to speed:
The year is 1912. Adèle Blanc-Sec, an intrepid young reporter, will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes.

Meanwhile, in Paris, it's panic stations! A 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg on a shelf in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the bird subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adèle Blanc-Sec, whose adventures reveal many more extraordinary surprises...

Set in the carefree world before World War I, Adèle Blanc-Sec's adventures see the brave young woman fearlessly battling crooks, corrupt politicians, demon worshipers and mad scientists. Legendary cartoonist Jacques Tardi's original stories perfectly recreate the intrigue, romance and excitement of one of the most tumultuous periods in history.

Adapted and directed by Luc Besson (Arthur and the Minimoys, The Fifth Element, The Professional), Adèle's exhilarating, funny and fabulous adventures will be one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of 2010.
Those attending the 28th Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF) can catch the world premiere with Luc Besson in attendance on April 9th. The theatrical release date in France is on April 14th.  You'll find the trailer embedded below.
