LUCY First Trailer & New Images


Last week we got our first look at Scarlett Johansson as the title character in Luc Besson’s new sci-fi action thriller Lucy and now the first trailer has been released.

Judging by the preview, the film looks like an action-oriented riff on Limitless and it looks really good.

Lucy also features reliable supporting cast including Morgan Freeman and Analeigh Tipton who was awesome in Crazy, Stupid, Love.

One of Hollywood’s most powerful women Johansson stars as a timid call girl who becomes an unwilling drug mule and transformed into an incredible fighter she’s capable of clairvoyance, telekinesis, and an ability to disregard pain and emotion when one of the designer drugs enters her system.

Lucy debuts on August 8th.

Check it out below along with a batch of images to accompany the trailer.

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.
