Universal Pictures just unveiled an extended clip from its upcoming "Lucy" action thriller, starring Scarlett Johansson as the title character. Check it out below.
Plot: The story focuses on a woman (Johansson) who is forced to become a drug mule. But the drug accidentally goes into her body, mysteriously granting her superhuman powers. She can absorb knowledge instantly, is able to move objects with her mind and can't feel pain or distress.
The new movie is written and directed by Luc Besson (The Professional) and co-stars Morgan Freeman. It's set to hit theaters on July 25th.
Oh my f*cking god, I just watched the trailer only to hear Morgan Freeman in his tired, beaten Magic Nero role babble on about "people use only 10% of their brain...".
Plus the anti-rape subtexts, Scarlet milking her "sex appeal", the use of Inception/Dark Knight music, the old "carrying something around in me" trope, and the "countdown to doom" trope as Lucy's brain fills up to 100% and Morgan mulls the dire consequences as if she'll explode into a supernova or something.
What the f*ck ever. And how does someone "learn Chinese" without ever seeing the language?
She looked hot buck-naked in UNDER THE SKIN, but when she was walking around in those short jeans skirt all I could think was, "She looks like she's wearing a soiled adult diaper under there, all thick and bulging out."
