LUCY: a movie that I suspect Luc Besson can make more of nowadays according to his vision due to the advancement of special effects:
Set in a futuristic world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupted cops, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, 2069 AD, works as a drug mule for the mob. The drug she inadvertently takes goes into her system, changing her into a metahuman. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts.
A huge fan of THE FIFTH ELEMENT and THE PROFESSIONAL, I can’t wait to see Scarlett Johansson in action!
LUCY is due out in theatres August 8th, 2014.
