First Look: Scarlett Johansson Armed & Dangerous in Besson's 'Lucy'
Next weekend, we'll see Scarlett Johansson kick ass again as Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And while her role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015 is said to be substantial (with the hope of her own spin-off), audiences won't have to wait too long to see Johansson back in action. The actress leads Lucy, a new action thriller from director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Professional), and we have the first photo before a trailer arrives on April 2nd. Johansson plays a woman caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and becomes a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.
Here's the first look at Scarlett Johansson in Luc Besson's Lucy from Entertainment Weekly:
Lucy is written and directed by Luc Besson (director of The Fifth Element and The Professional, writer of the Taken and Transporter franchises). The film follows a woman (Scarlett Johansson) forced to become a drug mule. But rather than just carrying the drug, it enters her system and turns her into a lethal vixen who can absorb knowledge with ease, move things with her mind, see into the future, and doesn't feel any pain at all. Morgan Freeman also stars in the film Universal Pictures sends to theaters on August 8th. Excited?

I seriously cannot wait! This movie reminds me of a really pumped up Limitless (for some weird reason that movie comes to mind).

I'm always up for any Besson movie, but his quality has been severely lacking lately - especially in scripts that he writes or helps write. This could be great, but will most likely be very flawed.

He could've titled it "Matilda". -_-
