May 24th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Universal Pictures has moved up Luc Besson’s sci-fi action thriller Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson from its August 8th release to July 25th. This will set it against Hercules starring Dwayne The Rock Johnson. Not to mention Sex Tape, starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel and the dance franchise installment Step Up All In.

In addition we have a new poster for the film below.

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.

Lucy also stars Morgan Freeman and Analeigh Tipton.
