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 became one of the hottest titles of the year after the film’s first trailer, now, a second international trailer has been released that goes deeper into the modern Matrix. Besson is a criminally underrated director, and we should expect to see one of the best action-sci-fi films in years come August 8. Watch Johansson become a near-God in the below trailer. Mind. Blown.
The film also stars Morgan Freeman and Analeigh Tipton.
