Page Six reports that Fox has revealed that featured shots including a hot-under-the-collar love scene between Vikander and Delevingne's Valerian co-star Dane DeHaan, is 'too racy' to show on television, despite the fact the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) had given the footage the go-ahead.

However, Fox's argument comes months after the full-length trailer for the costume drama - based on Deborah Moggach's novel about an affair between an artist and a rich man's young wife - which sees Vikander and DeHaan enjoying numerous steamy moments.

W reports the film, which was originally thought to be created in 2004, recruited the Jude Law and Keira Knightley to be onboard with the film, but changes in British tax rules concerning film affected production.

The new version was originally announced in 2013, with Vikanader and director Justin Chadwick already set to cream the film, before DeHaan came onboard with the production.

Harry Styles was even said to have turned down a part, later given to Matthew Morrison.

Despite rumours the film was set for an original release date of 2016, it's thought the film will finally hit cinemas in September.

Finally, another blockbuster to add to the list of films to see this autumn.

Bring it on.
