Scarlett Johansson is giving new meaning to the phrase, "if looks could kill," in the brand-new international trailer for director Luc Besson's upcoming superhero-esque, action thriller "Lucy."

Here, Johansson plays the young titular woman who gets abducted by a Korean crime syndicate. And soon discovers she is to be used as a drug mule to transport a new experimental narcotic inside her stomach. But once the contents start leaking into her system the drugs start to give her extraordinary super powers, including increased mental abilities -- so much so that she can control the elements around her. Lucy now seeks revenge on her former captives, and finds help with a French policeman (Amr Waked) and a college Professor (Morgan Freeman), who might be able to help her control her new found talents.

"Lucy" is set to open on July 25th.
