Scarlett Johansson has dangerous “abilities” in thrilling new ‘Lucy’ trailer



A brand new trailer arrived yesterday for Luc Besson’s new superhero thriller (I guess you can call it that!), Lucy, and we have the excellent new trailer embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

While the first trailer set up the story, and the fact that the gorgeous Scarlett Johansson plays Lucy, this new trailer expands on the films exciting story, and shows Lucy displaying even more of her newly found, and quite brilliant skills.

Johansson plays Lucy, a woman forced to be a drug mule, but who ends up with superhuman powers when the drugs end up in her system. The film looks like a mixture of all of Besson’s classics, like Nikita and Leon with touches of the futuristic feel of The Fifth Element and the woman in power style of films like Angel-A. Basically, if you are a Besson, Johansson or Morgan Freeman fan, then you’ve come to the right place.

Written and directed by Luc Besson, Lucy stars Scarlett Johansson, and supporting her will be Morgan Freeman, Analeigh Tipton, Min-sik Choi and Amr Waked.

Lucy arrives in UK cinemas August 22nd.


From La Femme Nikita and Leon 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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
