Comic Books, Digital Comics
Don’t mess with Scarlett Johansson’s Lucy. That seems to be the general theme of Luc Besson’s latest film, about a drug mule who gets knocked around enough for the experimental brain-and-body-enhancing chemicals to leak out and turn her into a superhuman set on revenge.
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.
Arriving Aug. 8, Lucy also stars Morgan Freeman.
