2014 is definitely Scarlett Johansson's year. From major blockbusters like [Captain America: The Winter Soldier](movie:254973) [Under The Skin](movie:211051) to , she's dominating the action/sci-fi sphere. That's definitely going to continue with Luc Besson's Lucy. Whereas this could've been a standard action movie with a badass female lead, Johansson is going into Milla Jovovich territory by developing supernatural powers after being used as a drug mule. And it looks awesome. Take a look at the first Lucy trailer below:

Here's the [Lucy](movie:935973) synopsis:

Set in a futuristic world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupted cops, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, 2069 AD, works as a drug mule for the mob. The drug she inadvertently takes goes into her system, changing her into a metahuman. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can't feel pain and other discomforts.

Lucy will be released on August 8, 2014.
