"What happens when she reaches 100%?" Following the first US trailer for Luc Besson's action thriller Lucy last month, a new international trailer shows off even more of Scarlett Johansson kicking ass with her body and mind. It's been awhile since we've gotten a truly fun and great film like this from Besson, but this looks to bring him back to the top of his game. The abilities that Johansson is able to unlock as the capacity of her brain increases make for a cool protagonist, and the fact that it's someone as lovely and badass as Johansson is just icing on the cake. Too bad the flick doesn't come out until August. Watch below!
Here's the international trailer 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 August 8th. Excited?
