Opening Today: “Lucy” (7/25/2014)

You loved her as The Black Widow in “Iron Man 2”, “The Avengers” and of course in “Captain America: the Winter Soldier” but now Scarlett Johansson dishes out the pain in her own action film entitled “Lucy” which opens up in theaters everywhere today. Check out the poster below.

Poster - Lucy - 2014

In a world run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts, and corrupt cops, Lucy is a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan who is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. A drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, which allows her to use more than the normal 10% of her brain’s capacity, thus changing her into a superhuman. As a result, she can absorb information instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind, and can choose not to feel pain or other discomforts, in addition to other abilities. (from the films Wiki entry)

Having seen the trailer (during “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” I might add) I have to say that this looks interesting. I like Scarlett as an actress and with her getting a solo action film can a full-length “Black Widow” feature be far behind? Check out the cast below which also features the always great to see Morgan Freeman.

The Cast:
Scarlett Johansson as Lucy
Morgan Freeman as Professor Norman
Choi Min-sik as Kang
Amr Waked as a French policeman
Pilou Asbaek
Mason Lee
Analeigh Tipton
Frédéric Chau
Claire Tran
Christophe Tek
Jan Oliver Schroeder
Yvonne Gradelet
Paul Chan
Michél Raingeval

You can enjoy trailers and download some screenshots via the Official Website which is linked below and also learn more about the overall production of the film via its Official Wiki entry. Just be warned that if you plan on seeing the film that you should not look at the Wiki until you do so since it would have plot spoilers almost immediately after opening. Will you be seeing this film in the theaters or will you be waiting on the DVD/Blu-ray/Netflix release? Feel free to chime in down in the comments since you know I love hearing from you on this sort of thing.
