First Trailer for Luc Besson's LUCY Starring Scarlett Johansson

By Amirose Eisenbach April 4, 2014

Scarlett Johansson will next be seen opposite Chris Evans in the amazing "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", reprising her role as Black Widow. We won't have to wait too long to see her in a badass femme fatale role however, as the first trailer has been released for Luc Besson's "Lucy".

The action thriller revolves around Johansson playing the title character of Lucy, who is forced to become a drug mule, who then becomes a lethal fighting machine with powers when the drug enters her system. She then finds herself able to retain knowledge at lightning speed, she doesn't feel any pain and she can move things with her mind.

Besson is perhaps best known for helming "The Fifth Element" and "The Professional", so he's no stranger to the genre. The trailer is a mix between action, mystery and sci-fi and has definitely grabbed our attention. It looks pretty exciting and fun and also stars the always wonderful Morgan Freeman.
