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?

New in Theaters: 'Hercules,' 'Lucy,' 'And So It Goes'

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.

Scarlett Johansson tears through Paris in new clip from Lucy: watch now A new clip has arrived online from Lucy, in which Scarlett-Johansson’s titular heroine takes a police car for a spin through the heart of Paris. Despite having never driven a car before, Lucy takes to it like a duck to water, albeit at the expense of most every other vehicle unfortunate enough to cross her path. The reason for her outrageous reflexes and reaction times? An accidental course of drugs that end up allowing her to use far more than the 10% of her brain popular culture would have us believe is the human average.

We're pretty darn excited about Scarlett Johansson's next actioner, Lucy. It sees the awesome actress teaming with Leon director Luc Besson to tell the tale of a woman transformed into a mega-minded assassin after a drug deal goes South. It's a fairly globe-hopping story, and Scarlett (and her director) discuss the film's locations in the UK exclusive featurette below. The clip also features a behind the scenes look at a key (and explodey) set-piece in the film, which looks fairly badass / cool.   Check it all out below, then let us know what you think in the comments!
