Release your limits in this first super-powered trailer for LUCY

1 min read


Scarlett Johansson has been kicking ass and taking names in several movies already, from Iron Man, through to the Avengers and the latest Captain America movie. The thing is, all that action has been done with pure skill and stunt doubles. So what happens when the Black Widow actually gets some super-powers? I don’t think the world is ready for Lucy.

From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

Bugger the whole brain usage myth about 10% and whatnot, that action looks all kinds of kickass, even if it doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. Remember kids, winners don’t take drugs. Unless they’re the kind of super-drugs that Lucy has taken. Then they super-win.

Lucy will be unlocking her full potential on August 8, and also stars Morgan Freeman.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
