action: Lucy 

Scarlett Johansson as Lucy

Kidnapped on a night out, Scarlett Johansson’s Lucy is  forced to act as a drugs mule on a dark deal. As the drug takes hold, its unprecedented side-effects see Lucy’s brain capacity increase and, with it, her abilities. What better way to use her new superhuman skills than to reap revenge? Luc Besson’s summer action sci-fi  explores the limits and potential of the human mind while also providing a chase-and-revenge story. Featuring a stellar cast, including Morgan Freeman as the brain specialist from whom Lucy seeks help.
