The Fifth Element remains an original vision of science-fiction cinema. Released in 1997, Luc Besson's film about an ex-special forces badass, an orange-haired humanoid created to be "perfect," and their incredible mission to save the world from a planet-killing force of destruction is so jam-packed with color and imagery, you'll gladly leave Earth behind. Twenty years later, the movie is just as vivid. Celebrate with us as we deep dive The Fifth Element on its 20th anniversary and reveal 20 things you didn't know about it.
