LUCY

Re­lease Date: 22/08

Charged - - MOVIES -

Scar­lett Jo­hans­son is a drug mule who takes too much of her own prod­uct and ends up un­lock­ing the full po­ten­tial of her brain.

Be­cause this is a movie writ­ten and di­rected by Luc Bes­son (the man be­hind The Fifth El­e­ment) this means that our hero­ine can sud­denly change the colour of her hair and read a book in­stantly.

And as her power grows, she’s able to take over the mind of oth­ers and even stop time. Bes­son in full on silly ac­tion movie mode is a rare treat these days and with this kind of star power he has enough money to play with to make some­thing truly spec­tac­u­lar. For added kudos, the film co-stars the mag­nif­i­cent Mor­gan Free­man.
