Scarlett Johansson Blows Our Mind In New Action Film 'Lucy'
The Avengers actress can be seen in a new trailer for the action-packed flick...
Not content with her kick-ass turn in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Scarlett Johansson once again plays action hero in a trailer for her upcoming film Lucy.
Co-starring Morgan Freeman and directed by Luc Besson (the man behind sci-fi flick The Fifth Element and hitman-with-a-heart story Leon), Lucy tells the tale of a drug mule, played by Johansson, who ingests something that allows her to use 100% of her brain (as opposed to the standard 10%).
As her brainpower grows, bad things start to happen, largely involving Lucy shooting people and beating them up. By the end of the 2 minute 24 second trailer, Lucy also appears to be able to shape shift and time travel, suggesting the film is hurtling towards a mind-blowing ending (possibly Lucy’s).
Lucy will be Scarlett’s first time carrying an action film, but hopefully not her last.
Marvel fans have been baying for a standalone Black Widow movie and the actress told reporters at The Winter Soldier premiere last week: "If you want to see a Black Widow spin-off movie, then I want to see it. We will put the request in to Marvel tomorrow."
If her next flick's a success, perhaps Marvel will finally listen.
Lucy is scheduled for release this summer.
