Lucy international trailer

It’s a total myth that humans use only 10% of their brains, but where would Hollywood be if action-thrillers were bound to scientific fact? In the new Lucy international trailer, Scarlett Johansson plays a young woman who ingests a drug that allows her to access the other 90% of her mental capacity.

This gives her superpowers, like enhanced strength and agility and the ability to move things with her mind. Which, again, doesn’t really make any sense in any scientific sense — but works perfectly as an excuse to have Johansson kick lots of ass for writer-director Luc Besson. Watch the Lucy international trailer after the jump.

Scarlett Johansson Lucy

Okay, so it’s not quite the solo Black Widow movie we’ve been waiting for. But Scarlett Johansson is getting her own superhero movie this summer, sort of. The film is directed by Luc Besson, and in Lucy Scarlett Johansson is a young woman who gains “superhero-level” powers via some drugs. This being a Luc Besson movie, this naturally leads to her using her newfound abilities to kick a lot of ass. Check out a first-look image from Lucy after the jump.

Brick Mansions trailer

This second Brick Mansions trailer, for the the Banlieue 13 remake that is also one of the late Paul Walker’s final films, relies on a moody cover of ‘Stand by Me’ to give it a little oomph. Not that the trailer really needs it, as the action (also featuring RZA and original B13 star and parkour pioneer David Belle) looks to be pretty hard-hitting and high-flying.

Luc Besson, who produced the original, scripted this remake, which opens in April. Watch the trailer below. Read More »

Shortly before his death in November, Paul Walker wrapped shooting on Camille Delamarre‘s Brick Mansions. The film is now headed for an April release, and the first trailer has just landed.

A remake of the French thriller Banlieue 13 (known in the U.S. as District B13), Brick Mansions features Walker as an undercover cop who must team with an ex-con (David Belle) to take on a drug kingpin (RZA) in the most dangerous tenement in a dystopian Detroit. It looks a little like what might happen if Brian O’Connor was dropped into Dredd or The Raid. Watch the video after the jump.

Kevin Costner in 3 Days to Kill

2014 is shaping up to be a busy year for Kevin Costner. So busy, in fact, that this isn’t even our first Kevin Costner post of the day. Earlier this morning, we saw him in the new Super Bowl spot for his sports drama Draft Day. Now we also have a new trailer for his upcoming thriller 3 Days to Kill.

Directed by McG, the film stars Costner as an international spy whose job has kept him distant from his wife (Connie Nielsen) and daughter (Hailee Steinfeld). When he discovers that he’s sick, he decides to get out of the game to spend more time with his family.

Then a mysterious femme fatale (Amber Heard) shows up, promising a cure for his illness if he’ll just compete one last mission. As it happens, the assignment falls on the same weekend that he’s tasked with taking care of his kid for the first time in ten years. Watch the new video after the jump.
