Scarlet Johansson has been on a bit of a sci-fi stampede recently, with the actress appearing in The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Under The Skin and Her. Now she can add one more name to that list, Lucy.
Lucy is a new sci-fi action thriller directed by Leon: The Professional director, Luc Besson. According to GeekTyrant, the movie promises to deliver one "of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history." From the looks of the recently released debut trailer, that assessment doesn't seem a million miles away. Check it out below:
As you can probably gather from the trailer, the movie concerns a woman who "turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic." At the moment, the explanation that she has 'unlocked the true potential of her brain' seems both a bit implausible and unoriginal, however, the visuals and action certainly looks impressive.
Lucy arrives in theaters on August 8th, 2014.
