Lucy Synopsis
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 also stars Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman and is produced by Virginie Besson-Silla for EuropaCorp.  Universal Pictures will distribute the movie worldwide, except for France, Benelux and China.

Luc Besson Says Lucy 2 Is Unlikely Luc Besson Says Lucy 2 Is Unlikely
Luc Besson confirms in the interview that Universal has approached him asking if he would be willing ,to get the band back together. Which is understandable. While “proven” action franchises like The Expendables die on the box-office vine (struggling to break $30 million domestically), Lucy sailed past the $113M mark in the States and has earned a healthy $216 million worldwide.

Dumb And Dumber To Parodies Lucy With The Perfect Poster Dumb And Dumber To Parodies Lucy With The Perfect Poster
Lucy isn't the only movie character whose brain capacity percentage is relevant. Lloyd's brain is important to. Dumb And Dumber To star Jim Carrey shared the above poster, which parodies Lucy but switches up the math a bit to remind us that Carrey's Dumb and Dumber character's brain is also functioning outside the norm, in its own way.

Weekend Box Office: Lucy Triumphs Over Less Than Legendary Hercules Weekend Box Office: Lucy Triumphs Over Less Than Legendary Hercules
The big summer blockbuster heading to theaters this weekend ended up washing out, leaving room for number one to go to a quirky director who hasn't had a movie in the top spot in almost twenty years.

10 Actresses Who Deserve A Big Action Role 10 Actresses Who Deserve A Big Action Role
We decided to look through Hollywood and see who else needed a badass action vehicle. Age wasn't a concern: if CGI and editing can make a bunch of seventy year olds jump through fireballs in The Expendables then why can't older women pull of feats of ridiculous strength too? (Also: see Red)

This Rotten Week: Predicting Hercules, Lucy And And So It Goes Reviews This Rotten Week: Predicting Hercules, Lucy And And So It Goes Reviews
Man, what a rough week for movies. Thankfully the weather is great, the sun is out, the air is warm, and we can find a million excuses to stay away from the theaters. That’s what happens when we get Hercules, Lucy and tired old stories posing as comedies hitting the big screen.

Scarlett Johansson's Lucy Loads Up On Beatings In International Trailer Scarlett Johansson's Lucy Loads Up On Beatings In International Trailer
The footage bares a slight resemblance to Transcendence in the implication that Johansson isn't a superpowered being, but rather evolving beyond mere man. Though maybe that's just the presence of Morgan Freeman, who always seems to find his way into these increasingly silly genre movies where people make things fly with their fingers and the laws of physics become a bendy straw.

Summer Movie Box Office Predictions: Blockbusters To Bombs Summer Movie Box Office Predictions: Blockbusters To Bombs
Which is why we've decided to break down most of the summer's offerings, observing exactly what it is about some films that cause them to succeed and fail. This involved number crunching, market analysis, educated guesses, and the application of a few snobby biases.

Scarlett Johansson Is A Super-Powered Drug Mule In First Lucy Trailer Scarlett Johansson Is A Super-Powered Drug Mule In First Lucy Trailer
What I’m most impressed by is Johansson’s arrogance in the part of an action star. The way she carries herself through the first trailer or Lucy, you can see the years of training as Black Widow just informing her every decision.

Morgan Freeman Will Lead The Hunt For Scarlett Johansson In Lucy Morgan Freeman Will Lead The Hunt For Scarlett Johansson In Lucy
It's been 10 years since Bruce Almighty, but admit it-- you still think of Morgan Freeman as God. The actor has carried an undeniable authority for his entire career, even when he was squabbling with a prejudiced Jessica Tandy in Driving Miss Daisy, but his casting as God in Bruce Almighty somehow struck a chord-- since then it's been nearly impossible to see him in a movie without just assuming he knows everything and has the power to control the world

Scarlett Johansson To Star As Luc Besson's Next Ass-Kicking Heroine In Lucy Scarlett Johansson To Star As Luc Besson's Next Ass-Kicking Heroine In Lucy
From Anne Parillaud in La Femme Nikita to Natalie Portman in Leon to Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element, director Luc Besson has made a career out of heading his action films with strong female characters, and today it appears that he may have found his next kick-ass heroine.
