The Transporter Refueled

Posted September 1st, 2015 by Senh Duong

Frank Martin (played by newcomer Ed Skrein), a former special-ops mercenary, is now living a less perilous life - or so he thinks - transporting classified packages for questionable people. When Frank's father (Ray Stevenson) pays him a visit in the south of France, their father-son bonding weekend takes a turn for the worse when Frank is engaged by a cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabanol), and her three seductive sidekicks to orchestrate the bank heist of the century.

Taken 3
It hardly seemed like the stuff of a trilogy in the making when it debuted in 2008, but Taken made a ton of money while repositioning Liam Neeson as an unlikely late-blooming action hero, so here we are, months away from what's supposedly the final installment in the Taken franchise.

Lucy
Since the theaters have been going through a dry spell of sorts for quality films, the first batch of certified fresh releases were able to make a good showing of themselves—one in particular was able to make a good deal above its predicted gross, and easily make its way to the top of the charts.

Sound Off: Johansson in Luc Besson's 'Lucy' - What Did You Think? Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Imagine what she could do with 100%. Now in theaters is Luc Besson's Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson as Lucy, a woman caught in a dark deal who ends up gaining incredible powers when a drug gives her 100% brain capacity superpowers. Morgan Freeman also co-stars as a Professor explaining what's going on with her, and how/why she's gaining these powers. Choi Min-sik, Amr Waked, Julian Rhind-Tutt and Pilou Asbæk are also in the sci-fi action movie. Is it any good? Did Luc Besson get his groove back?

This weekend is looking up a little from the last few weeks of mostly grim cinema—three new releases hit the theaters today, and while none are receiving rave reviews, they are certainly above the meager average ratings of the last few weekends.

Whether suiting up as Black Widow or luring oafish, young men to their otherworldly demise in Under the Skin, or wrangling Joaquin Phoenix with her voice alone in Her, Scarlett Johansson appears to be the ideal choice to play the next-level woman, a female character made supernatural with all the powers she beholds. So thank goodness writer/director Luc Besson has her front and center in Lucy, his latest sci-fi, evolutionary actioner that promises to blow your mind as well as your entertainment meter.

There’s something about a case, drugs and Paris in the following three clips from Lucy. Oh and the featurette is pretty cool too. As always, steer clear if you want to go in fresh, otherwise enjoy. They insist she opens the case, I mean it can’t have anything dangerous in it, right? The dozen armed […] Read Watch: Three Clips and a Featurette from Luc Besson’s Lucy on Filmonic.
