LUCY Red-Band Clip Featuring Scarlett Johansson Using Less Than 100% of Her Brain

     July 9, 2014

Let’s get something out of the way right now: the idea that humans only use 10% of their brain and could be superhuman if only we tapped into that other 90% is utter nonsense.  Aside from being categorically incorrect, it’s tired and lazy even as movie tropes go, and I want to believe that the majority of audiences know better and respond with an eye-roll upon hearing it.  That being said, writer-director Luc Besson’s Lucy could be a fun female-led action flick with literally almost any other explanation (nano-tech, genetic recombination, anything else…).  Case in point, now available for your viewing pleasure is the first red-band clip from the film featuring star Scarlett Johansson showing off her new-found abilities that are but a fraction of her eventual potential.  It’s such a shame that the man behind The Fifth Element and one of few women holding their own in superhero movies are restricted by something as idiotic as the 10% myth.  Hit the jump to watch the clip.  Lucy opens July 25th.

Here’s the new red-band clip from Lucy:

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.
