Also opening this week is another contender for the top spot of the box office, and is a completely different original movie, that being Lucy.
Produced by Universal Pictures and EuropaCorp, it tells a story about how humans use only 10% of our brains, but the story is about how a woman named Lucy (Played by Scarlett Johansson.) is able to use almost 100% of her brain.
The film is directed by Luc Besson, who is known for many other works. The last time I saw something of his was Arthur and the Invisibles, which was not really great but impressive. I haven’t kept up with him since then, but this recent film does look very impressive.
The problem is that this movie limits its audience because of it’s rating. The film is rated R, which cuts down the audience by almost 50%. But if adults really want to spend the money and see it, I’m sure Lucy will do alright.
It’s only competition is Hercules, which shouldn’t interfere with how this film does since they are two different things.
Lucy is directed and written by Luc Besson, and is set to be released July 25, 2014!
