Sure Scarlett Johansson is pregnant but that doesn’t mean she can’t kick butt on screen as well as at the box office.
The trailer above is for ScarJo’s new movie Lucy, a sci-fi/action epic from Luc Besson, director of The Fifth Element.
Scarlett plays the title character, a woman who wakes up from a night of partying to find out that smugglers have sewn a bag of drugs into her stomach.
Fortunately for Lucy (and unfortunately for the bad guys) the bag leaks, transforming her into a superhuman killing machine.
Okay, the premise is a little out there, but Scarlett’s career has been on a role lately, with Her taking home Oscar gold and The Avengers 2 certain to break box office records.
Scarlett is doing alright with her personal life these days, as well. After divorcing Ryan Reynolds and briefly dating Sean Penn, the actress got engaged in September to advertising executive Romain Dauriac. The couple has yet to announce a wedding date.
As if all that wasn’t enough, Scarlett also resumes her role as the Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in theaters this Friday.
Safe to say impending motherhood hasn’t slowed ScarJo down too much.
