I think I’ve already gone on record on this site as saying I was sold on the concept of Lucy as soon as I saw Scarlett Johansson looking moody wielding guns in a promo pic, so suffice to say I happily lapped up this featurette.

It’s pretty brief, but offers a behind the scenes look at some of the locations used in the upcoming actioner – namely Taipei and Paris.

Scarlett, along with director Luc Besson, is on hand to have a say on how great everything went, while the promo also throws in a bit of footage and plenty of stunt work.

Lucy – the tale of a drugs mule turned ‘merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic’ – hits UK cinemas on August 22.
