Today Universal Pictures released the first trailer for Lucy, the latest film from writer/director Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, The Professional, Fifth Element). Once again he has created what looks like another tough and memorable female action hero.
Lucy is an action-thriller that follows a woman (Scarlett Johansson) who is accidentally caught up in an underworld deal, who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. The film is directed by Luc Besson, starring Scarlett Johansson and Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman. It is due to arrive in theaters some time in August.
