Scarlett Johansson is One Sexy Weapon in Luc Besson's 'Lucy' Trailer
Following an armed and dangerous first look last week, the first trailer for Luc Besson's return to directing action thrillers has arrived. Lucy follows 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. Scarlett Johansson plays the title role, and she truly looks like one tough chick. The film is basically Limitless, but with an emphasis on accessing the maximum physical capabilities of a human in addition to the mental (as explained by Morgan Freeman). Besson knows how to do action pretty well, and this looks fun. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Luc Besson's Lucy, originally from Apple:
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?
