From a brief moment, there was a time to be excited about a new film from Luc Besson. But that was a long, long time ago when he was making movies like "La Femme Nikita," "Leon: The Professional" and "The Fifth Element." But these days he seems content to knock out drivel like last year's "The Family," his transparent awards contender "The Lady" all while helping stuff like "Taken" and "Brick Mansions" get made. Anyway, Besson is back behind the camera, this time for "Lucy," and yeah it looks about as exactly as underwhelming as you might guess.

From a brief moment, there was a time to be excited about a new film from Luc Besson.

Anyway, Besson is back behind the camera, this time for "Lucy," and yeah it looks about as exactly as underwhelming as you might guess.

Scarlett Johansson gets the lead role, playing a young woman who yada yada yada is now a supercharged something-or-other and gets mixed up with some bad dudes including Choi Min-Sik from "Oldboy." Anyway, a couple more clips are here from the movie, one with a more timid Lucy with a briefcase strapped to her arm, and another from a more confident Lucy, coolly telling the authorities what to do. And oh yeah, she changes her hair color with her mind and stares down a police dog. 

"Lucy" opens on July 25th. Watch below. [Comic Book Movie]
