Scarlett Johansson is Ready to Kick Some Serious Ass in 7 New Images from LUCY

I am so ready for another great female hero from filmmaker Luc Besson. After The Lady (2011) was inexplicably shunned by critics, I can only hope that LUCY, Besson's newest superheroine, to remind audiences that he is one of the few filmmakers who can create a multi-layered female character who can also kick some serious ass. And since many continue to root for Scarlett Johansson's version of The Black Widow from The Avengers, it makes sense that she be the one to play her. 

Here's a little more about the film:

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.

Lucy also stars Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman and is produced by Virginie Besson-Silla for EuropaCorp. Universal Pictures will distribute the movie worldwide, except for France, Benelux and China.

The production notes are a little more compelling, and dig deeper into what the film is about. Besson was inspired to write the story based on the idea that as humans we use much less of our mind’s capacity than we are capable of using. LUCY explores what it would be like if we could access the furthest parts of our brain, and how that would affect how we see ourselves and others, how we would react to the world around us. With that in mind, this particular character becomes somewhat of a superhuman--with amazing mental and physical capability. Which means, naturally she'll develop enemies that she must annihilate. 

Sounds intriguing, right? Check out a few new images from the film:

LUCY is in theaters July 25th.

I'm with the first commenter; this movie has had me in its clutches, ever since I saw the trailer. I almost can't wait.
