We’re finally starting to get more footage from Luc Besson’s Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson as the titular Lucy, dealing with newly-acquired superpowers when a bag of experimental drugs breaks in her stomach. The newer videos play down that the premise is based on the myth of her using “more than 10% of her brain” and instead focus on her logic-defying superpowers.

The clip above shows her testing out her burgeoning powers by stealing a cop car from an officer (Amr Waked) and driving it the wrong direction through the heart of Paris. As one does.

Here’s the official synopsis:

From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

She’s merciless and beyond human logic? What is this, Time Warner Cable: The Movie?

Universal has also released more pictures and an explosive featurette in which Johannson asks, “Life was given to us a billion years ago; what have we done with it?”

We’ve done drugs. Obviously. Don’t judge us, Lucy, we were told we’d get superpowers.
