Originally slated for release in August, one week after Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters, Luc Besson's action thriller Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson is getting bumped up a couple weeks. Universal has announced the film will now arrive on July 25th, pitting it up against Dwayne Johnson as Hercules, the comedy antics of Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz in Sex Tape and the dance sequel Step Up All In. Seems odd to put it up against Hercules, but maybe the studio has heard the action epic isn't tracking well and can bring in a big audience still. In addition, the studio release a new poster for you to feast your eyes on. Look!
Here's the new poster for Luc Besson's Lucy from Universal Pictures:
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?
Looks fairly good, but something's really bothering me about this poster (and trailers)... wikipedia.org/wiki/ten_percent_of_brain_myth

"The 2014 movie Lucy is based on the (ten percent of brain) myth." Oh. That's definitely going to bother me...

If your script and marketing are that incompetent how good could the movie possibly be?

Man she's ugly...if it were defined as "incredibly gorgeous."

In the first photo she looks like the boy Charlie from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

I wouldn't say that I'm excited, but I'll torrent it for sure.

Why do they still use that 10% crap? It's not true. We probably use a tenth of a tenth of tenth of our brain capacity.

I am looking forward to this one, hopefully it's action packed throughout.

I hate to know about the 10% brain use myth and THEN look at the trailer :/
