Scarlett Johansson Stars in ‘Lucy’ — WATCH
It’s a good thing Scarlett Johansson wasn’t pregnant yet when she was filming Lucy because her scenes are intense!
Scar Jo plays an everyday girl who’s life is turned upside down when she’s captured by a mob and forced to become their drug mule. Little did the mob know, little Lucy was about to become a dangerously badass chick. The drugs, which are involuntarily implanted into her body, leak in Lucy’s system, causing her to transform into a superhuman with insane powers.
“Somebody put a bag of drugs inside of me,” says Lucy who holds a room of men at gunpoint. “I need you to take it out. It’s leaking.”
Suddenly, Lucy can move objects (and people and cars) with her mind, can’t feel any pain and has an ultra high-powered brain. “It’s like all things that make me human are fading away,” she says. Yep. Pretty much.
“All this knowledge, you can unlock secrets that go beyond our universe,” says costar Morgan Freeman in the trailer. “I’m not even sure that mankind is ready for it.”
Lucy, who’s eyes eerily change colors and can disguise herself just with the power of her mind (she has the ability to access 100% of her brain function), looks far too comfortable having weapons at hand 100% of the time, and it’s awesome.
The action-packed summer film is set to hit theaters this August.
