We all know and love Scarlett Johansson as the ass-kicking superhero, Black Widow. Soon though, we’ll be seeing her on the screen with new powers. In the newly released first official trailer for Lucy we see Scarlett gain some amazing physical and mental capabilities, courtesy of a leaking package of drugs that have been surgically placed inside her by a drug cartel.
Written and directed by Luc Besson, Lucy is set to hit the big screen in the US on August 8 and the UK on August 22, 2014.
From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks 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.
