Luc Besson and Scarlett Johansson have returned to create another Sci-fi thriller that takes action and science to an extreme theatrical level. Taking a true liking to Sci-fi, Johansson plays the part of a drug mule working for the mob, in a city overrun by the underworld, drug addicts, and corrupt police force. in the year 2069 AD, Taken to Taipei, Lucy (Johansson) is exposed to the drug she is carrying and it accidentally enters her system, she turns into a metahuman capable of otherworldly powers such as absorbing knowledge instantly, moving objects with her mind and an immunity to pain. As her powers increase she joins forces with a medical professor, played by Morgan Freeman, while the underworld chases her down. Also starring Oldboy‘s Min-sik Choi, Lucy looks like a typical Besson sci-fi that won’t be by the book. It releases in cinemas on August 8.
