"Life was given to us a billion years ago. What have we done with it?" We're getting closer to the release of Luc Besson's seemingly fun action thriller Lucy, starring Scarlett Joahnsson as a woman who unlocks her minds full potential after a drug concealed in her body begins to change her into a lethal weapon with unfathomable abilities. Now a new featurette has popped up, focusing the film's shooting in Taipei, complete with some cool new footage of Johansson using her quickly expanding mind powers. This looks like it's going to be full of great action, and could be another great piece of sci-fi from Besson. Watch below!
Here's the new featurette for Luc Besson's Lucy from YouTube:
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 July 25th. Excited?

I can't help but wonder if she actually has powers or is tripping...

LUCY looks slick. Besson back on the tip.

I managed to see this at a screening last night. I didn't hate it but I'm not sure if I liked it. There were a few things they could have cut out and it probably would have made it a little better.

I completely disagree. This movie seems to be trite in way that isn't tongue-in-cheek at all. How many more films are going to babble "we only use ten percent of our brain! if we used it all we'd be telekinetic super genius wizards!" at us before someone reads a freakin' Wikipedia article? I don't think Besson has made a film that was worth a damn since the Fifth Element. I reiterate, and I could be wrong, but this film looks like complete and total garbage.
