Universal Studios has released a searing poster for Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson, along with an update on when audiences can see the action flick. The studio has moved up the release date to July 25 so that audiences can get a taste of director Luc Besson’s latest even sooner!
The writer-director of The Fifth Element and The Professional has been writing and producing more than directing of late, so it is with great anticipation that we greet this fresh poster and news of the release date moving up. As he told us in our Luc Besson exclusive interview, audiences have never seen a movie quite like this.
Lucy stars Johansson as a woman who is kidnapped, has drugs surgically implanted inside her and is forced to be a drug mule. When a punch to the gut releases the drugs into her system, she takes on almost superhuman powers -- and those who wronged her better watch out!
