Lucy is probably the most unassuming film title I’ve heard in a long time, but it features Scarlett Johansson as a woman who has the night out to end all nights out, and wakes up to find someone’s performed surgery on her….
But no-one’s taken out a kidney or anything… they’ve actually sewn some drugs inside her. They get disrupted and, before long, she’s able to use far more of her brain’s capacity than the average human’s usual 10%. Yes, it sounds like Limitless, but hey, it’s Scarlett Johansson, so why not. It looks pretty cool, too.
Written and directed by Luc Besson, as well as being produced by Besson and Christophe Lambert (no, not that one), it also stars Morgan Freeman, Analeigh Tipton, Min-sik Choi and Borgen’s Pilou Asbæk.
Lucy is out in the UK on August 22nd and a new International trailer has now been released.
