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.

Jon Favreau returns to his roots with the upcoming comedy Chef. He wrote, directed and starred in the film, which tells the story of a chef who tackles his own independent food truck after being unhappy with his more traditional restaurant job. The film is a far cry from Favreau’s latest work, the Iron Man films and Cowboys and Aliens. That’s surely by design. He hasn’t skimped on the talented cast, though, which includes Robert Downey, Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt,and Scarlett Johansson.
The film opens May 9, check out the Chef trailer below. Read More »

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.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a big movie. Big in scope, dense in story, and pivotal to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. It continues the story of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), also known as Captain America, as he begins to return to “normal” life after saving the world with some friends in The Avengers. He’s joined by fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), a soldier turned friend Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and a slew of others including, but not limited to, characters played by Sebastian Stan, Robert Redford, Frank Grillo, Georges St. Pierre, Cobie Smulders and Hayley Atwell. Like I said, it’s a big movie.
Directors Anthony and Joe Russo do a solid job of molding all these moving parts into a story that, for the most part, makes sense. But even when the story gets a little too complicated and the exposition a bit too wordy, it’s quickly saved by its entertaining action and continual narrative twists. Many of these will change everything you thought you knew about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And I’m not just talking about the two credits scenes. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a fun, worthy, if slightly bulky entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
