If you just push the “100% of your brain” tagline for Lucy out of your mind (because brains don’t work in a capacity measured by percent), you have what could be an incredibly exciting movie. Director Luc Besson has a knack for creating memorable, ass-kicking women from Nikita to Mathilda to Leeloo. He may have another one with Scarlett Johansson‘s eponymous protagonist. Judging by the trailer, it looks like a damn fun movie and an opportunity for the actress to get an action vehicle to herself rather than sharing it with superheroes.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of Lucy. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. The film also stars Morgan Freeman and Analeigh Tipton. Lucy opens in theaters nationwide on July 25th.
To enter for a chance to win an admit-two pass, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “LUCY”. The screening is on Tuesday, July 22nd at Regal Atlantic Station at 7:00pm, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Please note that a pass is not a ticket. To guarantee a seat, please arrive at the theater early since seating is first come, first serve.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer:
And here’s the official synopsis:
From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.
