New, 120 comments

Even with Captain America: The Winter Soldier hitting theaters, Scarlett Johansson isn't taking a break. In the movie Lucy, written and directed by acclaimed French filmmaker Luc Besson, Johansson plays a woman working as a drug mule for the mob. But when some of the drugs she's carrying start to leak into her system, she turns into a "metahuman" with telekinetic powers and the ability to absorb intelligence instantly. The first trailer promises a wild ride with Johansson rendering people unconscious with a flick of her wrist — and that's just for starters. Lucy is scheduled to hit theaters August 8th.
