I don’t need to remind you but Scarlett Johansson is one tough lady. I know it, you know it, we all know it. And this new international trailer for Luc Besson‘s upcoming Lucy proves it, italicizes it and underlines it.
Yes, Scarlett Johansson is awesome and, yes, she can kick your ass.
Lucy follows a young woman who is accidentally poisoned with some mysterious drugs. Instead of getting a really awesome high, Lucy begins to…change. You know how they say we only use 10% of our brain? Well, Lucy learns to use all 100%. With that comes some ridiculous abilities, including telekinesis, shape-shifting and all sorts of nifty, Neo-like party tricks.
This new international trailer features a lot of stuff we’ve already seen but it’ll still get your heart going. Johansson is on such a roll lately and she seems perfectly suited for this part. Look at that face in the image above, that’s the face of a girl ready to do some serious damage.
Johansson is a major draw for me but I’m really, really excited to see Besson take on a sci-fi-tinged action film again. The man has created some iconic female characters over the years and it looks like Lucy could be another. I’ve always felt that Besson’s films are as good as the muses who star in them and Johansson is one hell of a muse. Will Lucy be on par with Leon or on par with The Family? I know I speak for many, many fans when I say please, please, please be more on par with Leon.
