Watch: Scarlett Johansson Is Back In Action In First Trailer For Luc Besson's 'Lucy'

How does one describe Luc Besson‘s “Lucy“? Well, we’ll just let Scarlett Johansson explain it herself. “I wouldn’t say it’s science fiction, but it’s definitely a thriller,” she told Darren Aronofsky in Interview magazine last fall. “I play a character who, throughout the course of the film, begins to use a greater and greater capacity of her brain.” 

Okay, well points for an ambition we suppose and the first trailer is here to let us see how that concept plays out. ScarJo takes the titular role in this one, playing a woman, forced to become a drug mule, who finds the substances have entered her body instead, turning her into an unstoppable ass kicker. Shades of Bourne, perhaps? The film also stars Morgan Freeman and Choi Min-sik, best known as the protagonist of the original “Oldboy.”

Watch the trailer below — “Lucy” arrives on August 8th.

aaaaaagh, the "ten percent of brain's capacity" thing is a retarded urban legend.


How does this have shades of Bourne at all?


genre: stupid sc-fi.


It has potential, I'll say that.


So… this is like Limitless, but with Scarlett??




Choi Min-Sik FTW!


Remember when Luc Besson was going to retire? Those were the days.
