Is there anything Scarlett Johansson can’t do?
Universal Pictures has released the trailer for ‘Lucy,’ a sci-fi action thriller written and directed by Luc Besson (‘The Transporter,’ ‘Taken’) and judging by what we see in this preview, ScarJo won’t be one to be messed with.
‘Lucy’ tells the story of a woman who lives in Taiwan and works as a drug mule. When a drug she’s smuggling accidentally seeps into her body, she gains superhuman powers and unlocks the secret potential behind the human brain. Where most humans have access to only about 10% of their brain, the movie asks: what if we could unlock 100% of our mental potential?
Kicking butt on screen isn’t new to Johansson. This week she reprises her role of Black Widow in the Marvel movie ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ and will also play the part again in ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ due for release in the summer of 2015.
‘Lucy’ is set to be released on August 8, 2014. The movie also stars Morgan Freeman, Analeigh Tipton, Choi Min-Sik and Amr Waked.
