“Life was given to us a billion years ago. What have we done with it?” In this short featurette, star Scarlett Johansson discusses Lucy and the locations where the sci-fi film was shot, including Taipei and Paris.
Scarlett Johansson gains superhuman powers as a result of accidentally ingesting a mysterious drug. And now she’s out for revenge. Lucy is the latest film from writer/director Luc Besson (The Professional, The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita) starring Scarlett Johansson in the title role.
