Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Age of Ultron) headlines Luc Besson’s Lucy, a straight up action thriller about a woman whose mind is tapped to its utmost potential. The film is headed to Digital on January 6, 2015, with a Blu-ray and DVD release date set for two weeks later on January 20, 2015, courtesy of Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
Lucy, which co-stars Morgan Freeman, was a late summer box office release on July 25 that exploded for $43.9 million on its opening weekend despite mixed reviews from critics. Overseas success is the reason for Lucy’s slow move to home video as the film’s worldwide box office gross earnings have crossed $443.5 million thanks to the allure of Mrs. Johansson and Luc Besson’s international draw.
For such a box office success, Universal is taking the high road when it comes to Lucy Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD combo pack bonus features. They include:
- CEREBRAL CAPACITY – THE TRUE SCIENCE OF LUCY: Morgan Freeman serves as guide for fans to dive into the world of Lucy.
- THE EVOLUTION OF LUCY – Follow Lucy’s transformation through the eyes of Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman and Director Luc Besson.
Universal is presenting Lucy in 2.4:1 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio on Blu-ray.
