Scarlett Johansson vs. The Revolving Room in ‘Lucy’ (Exclusive)


Most Blu-ray special features are a bit of a bore, if we’re being honest, but when you shove Scarlett Johansson into a massive revolving room and make he dangle from a chain as it turns, you’ve got some really cool behind the scenes footage to show off.

That’s what we’ve got for you in this exclusive preview of the special features on the Lucy Blu-ray. In the film, Scarlett Johansson stars as a woman whose genetic potential is unlocked by an experimental drug, and begins to evolve into a higher state of consciousness. And of course, the drug dealers are after her, leading to one psychic-powered showdown after another.
