The International Trailer for Lucy Starring Scarlett Johansson; Don't Blink

When the first trailer for LUCY hit, I wasn't having any of it. LIMITLESS meets X-MEN right? I'm not the first to point it out, but after watching this new trailer, I would like to be the last. It looks like a fantastic feast for the senses and while having similar traits of those two movies, it's starting to stand in its own shadow.

The talented and sexy Scarlett Johansson kicks everyone's ass in the new action thriller from writer/director Luc Besson (LA FEMME NIKITA, THE PROFESSIONAL, THE FIFTH ELEMENT). She plays Lucy, a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, who is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. They implant a new super drug that she is supposed to take somewhere in the world, but the substance inadvertently leaks into her system, converting her into a superhuman.

Lucy absorbs knowledge instantaneously, moves objects with her mind, and doesn't feel pain or discomfort. Yup, sounds like drugs to me. That or Black Widow with actual superpowers, either way I’m there.

LUCY opens August 8th 2014.

Extra Tidbit: If they never say "we only use 10% of our brains" in a movie again, I'll be happy.

Looks like a lot of fun

and Scarlett Johansson appears to be making a play for the action heroine throne that Angelina Jolie vacated. I hope it's a good flick, but I agree with whoever said, "I never want to hear the 'we only use 10% of our brains' trope again."

If this is a hit I would not be surprised if we start hearing more about a Black Widow movie.

As a Taiwanese American who lived in Taiwan for 8 years, I'm definitely checking these out since much of it is set and shot in Taipei (love that city!). Still on its own merits, this looks to be one of the more interesting Luc Besson projects in years.

I wouldn't say Limitless meets X-Men. I got more of a Limitless meets Push vibe.

Anyway, the film looks like alot of fun and that's fine by me with this type of content.
