"Her brain capacity is increasing by the minute." A new extended TV spot for Lucy has debuted with Scarlett Johansson turning into more of a bad ass with as she unlocks more of the untapped potential of her brain's capacity due to an experimental super drug that leaked inside her body while being forcibly turned into a drug mule. Now she's out for revenge, using telekinesis and more to find the people responsible for doing this to her. Morgan Freeman is there for some exposition, and we're certainly on board for this summer action fun. Remember, Universal releases the film two weeks earlier on July 25th.
Here's the extended TV spot 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?
Pretty pumped. Had a similar script written but didn't like my ending (lead's mass transformed into energy at 100%). Hope Luc Besson puts a nicer bow on this than I could.

Looks like tons of fun! Besson does not let down.

Sounds like fun, it's just a shame that the central 'fact' that we only use 10% of our brain is so very wrong…
