The Fifth Element, Leon and Nikita director Luc Besson is back with his first sci-fi film in an age, Lucy, and the first picture – see above – to fit.

Also starring The Dark Knight‘s Morgan Freeman, Warm Bodies‘ Analeigh Tipton and Oldboy’s Min-sik Choi, Lucy follows a titular drug mule played by Scarlett Johansson, who develops superpowers when she accidentally ingests her cargo, using her newfound abilities to turn the tables on those who have exploited her.

Lucy is expected to see release later in 2014.
