Luc Besson’s Lucy stars Scarlett Johansson as an American woman in South Korea who is kidnapped and forced to smuggle an experimental drug in her stomach. Of course, that experimental drug has huge side effects – such as increased brain function and telekinesis.
This will be Oldboy‘s Choi Min-sik’s first international movie, which automatically means I have high hopes for Lucy. Judging by the trailer, it looks very similar to Limitless, a movie which I thought was pretty decent. There’s plenty of action-packed goodness, as well. Check it out below.
Lucy opens in theaters on August 8, 2014.
