It looks as if it will be a busy summer for Scarlett Johansson. Check out the trailer for Lucy below. This new sci-fi action thriller, arrives August 8th, and is directed by Luc Besson (Leon, The Fifth Element). 

Synopsis: Set in a futuristic world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupted cops, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, 2069 AD, works as a drug mule for the mob. The drug she inadvertently takes goes into her system, changing her into a metahuman. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can't feel pain and other discomforts.

WOW! This is great! It's a whole different take on a superpowered person that hasn't been done in our modern world of heroes cinema.

The closest things to it is the obvious Akira. But also the Star Trek:TOS episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and The Cloak & Dagger comic. It also reminds me of a B grade horror movie from the 50s I saw as a kid called She-Devil where a scientist gives a dying woman an experimental drug that not only heals her but she slowly becomes a superstrong, invunerable and shapeshifting seductress.

Looks cool, but the trailer gives away everything but the ending it seems.

 I agree spiderhero...I effing hate trailers these days.  They ruin everything.  It does look cool.  Though I feel like I've seen the "person uses 100% of their brain" thing before.  And that whole we only use 10% of our brain idea has been disproven.  I'll still watch tho.

Very cool concept.. kinda similar to Bradley Cooper in Limitless, but taking it waaaaay further.  And of course a chic.. LOL..  I like movies like this.. i want to see more

I little cliche, but it's got some serious potential.  Also, I agree with Rob; SJ over Bay's lame Turtles.

Arrrrghhhh we don't use 10% of our brain!

Most of it is doing the mundane stuff like keeping us alive, just walking in a straight line takes ridiculous amounts of calculation...

WHY!!!!?

@Monkeyfoot...

Of course this is 'slowly' by 1950s B-Movie standards where 70 minutes was seen as EPIC!

:)

That said SJ is really working hard of late, in Under The Skin she puts in a pretty gob-smacking performance.
