Dailies | Scarlett Johansson Accidentally Accesses 100 Percent of Her Brain Power in First ‘Lucy’ Trailer (Video)

Morgan Freeman plays a professor researching the powers humans could possess if they were just a little bit smarter

Scarlett Johansson is already the Marvel superhero Black Widow in this weekend's “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” but this summer she'll be showcasing actual super powers as “Lucy.”

The first trailer (above) for the upcoming action flick from writer/director Luc Besson (“The Professional”) shows Johansson — an American abducted somewhere in Asia and turned into a drug mule – accidentally accessing more cerebral capacity than any human being on the planet when whatever drug that was surgically implanted in her stomach leaks into her system.

As she gets closer to reaching 100 percent of her brain function, she continues to evolve into merciless warrior looking for revenge on her captors.

Morgan Freeman plays a professor studying the untapped powers that lay dormant in humanity in the “Limitless”-like movie that Universal is releasing in theaters on Aug. 8.

    I think they should change the name to Limitless 2

  • Jose Saucedo

    You know everyone except those with severe mental handicaps or certain disorders has access to 100% of their own brain.

  • Michael Difani

    This hot actress at 29 is going very strong in her roles….I'd like to see Liam Neeson in this flick as the vengeful father as he was in “Taken” taking out Albanian (!) sex traffickers. His very lethal, very painful martial skills hit the mark, folks! Broken necks and limbs in split seconds. Oh, I almost forgot the skulls he cracked.

  • Danny Kastner

    It's worth it for 2:25 in the trailer. Hilarious.
