The actress is also pretty tough as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
It seems like Scarlett Johansson loves playing tough female characters. In the latest trailer for her upcoming film, Lucy, the actress kicks some serious butt as a woman trying to survive with her new-found superhuman abilities in a modern world.
Set in the year 2069 where the streets are ruled by mobs and gangs, this film follows the story of Lucy, a woman tricked into becoming a drug mule.
When she accidentally ingests the drugs and it seeps into her system, she somehow changes into a metahuman. Lucy is suddenly able to absorb a lot of information and data in mere seconds, as well as move objects with her mind.
However, what seems like a good thing has its downfall.
Directed by French filmmaker Luc Besson, the movie also stars Morgan Freeman, Analeigh Tipton, Choi Min-Sik and Amr Waked. Distribute by UIP, it is set to open in Malaysian cinemas in August. Johansson can currently be seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as S.H.I.E.L.D agent Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow.
