Lucy: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Luc Besson + Scarlett Johansson + Morgan Freeman + Oldboy's Choi Min-sik + Nikita + Limitless + BBC's Sherlock's "Mind Palace"? Sign us up for Lucy, the upcoming action film set to hit the screens in August. 

Here at The Daily Zombies, we know it is a good day when something out of the left field caught us unexpectedly in a positive way. And we are of course talking about Lucy here.

Further cementing her arrival as this generation's badass action movie babe, Scarlett Johansson will be teaming up with Luc Besson himself in Lucy, an intriguing action thriller set to be released this August. Besson may be well-regarded by many as one great film-maker with a good eye for the bubblegum pop, but after 1994's Léon: The Professional, there is no denial of the French director's brilliance in capturing the attention of the audience. And this is precisely what transpired here in his latest film.

When a hapless Caucasian woman (the titular character played by Scarlett Johansson) living in Taiwan, is forced to become a drug mule for the mob, the designer drugs inadvertently enter her system, and she became half Nikita (kick-ass babe that feels no pain) and half Sherlock (BBC's, complete with her very own "Mind Palace") in what is shaping up to be exhilarating action thriller that also feature Morgan Freeman as the resident wise man and with Oldboy's Choi Min-sik (the bloody original of course) as the antagonist, the film instantly got infinitely darker.

Hit the jump to check out the first trailer of the film, freshly released by Universal Pictures.

Here are the official images from the film.

And here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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.

Lucy is currently scheduled to be released on 8th August 2014.
