A new international trailer has gone online for Lucy.  Director Luc Besson‘s (The Fifth Element) upcoming action thriller stars Scarlett Johansson as a reluctant drug mule who is transformed into an incredible fighter capable of clairvoyance, telekinesis, and an ability to disregard pain and emotion when one of the designer drugs enters her system.  While I have to grit my teeth every time I hear the “only use 10% of our brains” line, it’s a premise I’m willing to accept if it means we’ll get the goofy fun that’s on display in this trailer.  The movie looks like someone said “We gave Black Widow superpower.  Enjoy.”

Hit the jump to check out the Lucy international trailer.  The film opens August 8th and also stars Morgan Freeman and Analeigh Tipton.

Here’s the official synopsis for Lucy:

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.
