First trailer for Scarlett Johansson's 'Lucy' is amazing


Lucy in the sky with a semi-automatic

Luc Besson's (The Fifth Element) upcoming action thriller Lucy has it all; Scarlett Johansson kicking serious ass, telekinesis, explosions, designer drugs, superhuman strength, and Scarlett Johansson kicking serious ass. Did I say that last one twice? Good, because the action in this trailer is that fierce.

Johansson stars as title character Lucy, a frightened drug mule turned genius kill machine by way of a bag of blue jelly drugs exploding in her stomach and leaking into her bloodstream. That may seem like a difficult story to swing, but Lucy's first action packed trailer does the ambitious plot justice. Between Johansson's gravity-defying fight moves and the film's inclusion of Matrix-like scrolls of cyber-text, the entire vibe of Lucy is action-packed sci-fi goodness, and I am overwhelmingly excited. 

Lucy hits theaters August 8th.
