Things that I like: 1) Luc Besson making American Films again. 2) Scarlett Johnasson in one of those movies, kicking ass and channeling Leeloo from The 5th Element. 3) Dragons. Those first two are the focus of Besson’s newest film, Lucy. The film has Johansson who gets a bunch of drugs into her stomach body that turns her into a super-being that can manipulate time and space.
Besson has crafted another insane film and I can’t wait to see it when it comes out this August. Below, is the international trailer which features more action and sci-fi than I even know what to do with!
Here’s the official synopsis for Lucy:
[box_light]From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.[/box_light]
Lucy will be out on August 8th. The film stars: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, and Analeigh Tipton.
