Watch: Scarlett Johansson Is Worst First Time Driver in ‘Lucy’ Clip

Scarlett Johansson’s Lucy may be able to tap into more brain power than the average person (never mind the “humans only use 10 percent of their brains” nonsense), but that doesn’t make her a smart driver.

The titular femme fatale in Luc Besson’s upcoming actioner causes some major damage on the streets of Paris when she puts the pedal to the metal in an SUV. Lucy’s reckless driving leads to several collisions, but she remains unfazed. “We never really die,” the first time driver tells the cop (Amr Waked) who sits petrified in the passenger seat.

Johansson plays a drug mule who carries a drug that accidentally enters her system, giving her access to increasingly more and more of her brain at the expense of her humanity. Morgan Freeman also stars as a scientist.

The pic will open the 67th Locarno Film Festival on August 6, out-of-competition. “Lucy” hits theaters on July 25.
