Universal Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for Luc Besson’s upcoming film Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson! We’ve been waiting to see Johansson gain superpowers and go on an ass-kicking spree, and it looks like a mic between Limitless and Crank.
Check it out below along with the first official stills from the film.
Writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history, from La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element.
Lucy is 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.
What we know about the story:
“centers on a woman forced to become a drug mule. But the drug instead goes into her system, transforming her into an ass-kicking machine. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts”.
The film also stars Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman.
Lucy is scheduled to hit theaters on August 8th.
