Last night during the NBA Finals, an extended TV spot for Luc Besson’s Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson dropped. It was just revealed last week that the film has received an R rating for “strong violence, disturbing images, and sexuality.”
I’ve included the first TV spot as well.
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.
The cast also includes Morgan Freeman and Analeigh Tipton.
Lucy is set to release on July 25th, 2014.
