Universal Pictures has released the first extended TV Spot for Luc Besson’s Lucy. There’s some new footage here, but mostly it serves to keep the film in the consciousness.
Lucy is a young woman living in Taipei, Taiwan who earns a living as as a drug mule for the mob. When one of the drugs she is carrying gets into her system it turns her into a person who can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain.
Scarlett Johansson plays Lucy, alongside Morgan Freeman, Choi Min-sik, Amr Waked, Pilou Asbaek, and Lee Chu.
Lucy is out in Ireland on August 22th.
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.
