Scarlett Johansson fans have reason to rejoice, as she appears in nearly every minute of the new action thriller Lucy, from director Luc Besson. The Avengers star takes on a completely different type of superhero role in this high-intensity cinematic workout, which finds an unwilling drug mule endowed with super powers of both mind and body after a dangerous drug leaks inside her stomach. Check out some of the crazy action in our new Lucy photo gallery, which brings over 20 fresh images featuring our leading lady alongside co-stars Morgan Freeman, Amr Waked and Frédéric Chau.
In a world that is 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. The drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, changing her into a superhuman, due to accessing much more than the normal 10% of her brain capacity. She can absorb information instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind, and chooses not to feel pain or other discomforts.
