Synopsis: Scarlett Johansson plays a young woman who gains superhuman powers in 'Lucy', a movie which marks Luc Besson's (The Fifth Element) return to Science Fiction. This isn't your average superhero movie though as Lucy gains her powers after being forced to work as a drug mule by a brutal criminal cartel. When Lucy accidentally ingests the drugs she gains a host of powers including the ability to absorb knowledge and an inability to feel pain. Morgan Freeman and Min-Sik Choi (Old Boy 2003) also star.
