Another Thanksgiving is upon us, which means we'll gather around tables with friends and family and be asked to share what we're thankful for. Here at ScreenCrush, we think now is a good time to reflect on the wonderful bounty that has been delivered to us from the benevolent creators of film and television throughout 2014. This year has given us much to be grateful for, and so now we say thanks as we prepare to stuff our faces and fall into meat and pie comas (and ready ourselves for that 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' trailer).

This weekend saw two movies named after their lead characters go head-to-head. In one corner, you have 'Lucy.' In the other, 'Hercules.' If you asked the average person who would win in a battle between Dwayne Johnson and Scarlett Johansson, most would probably side with the guy whose nickname is "The Rock." But the box office this weekend went in a completely different direction.

In the last year, Scarlett Johansson has voiced a sentient operating system in Spike Jonze's 'Her' and played an alien striving to understand humanity in Jonathan Glazer's jarring 'Under the Skin.' This week, she tackles a different kind of sci-fi with 'Lucy,' a film that carries some of the same thematic DNA as her previous roles, though it isn't quite as intellectual -- nor is it as brainy as its titular character. But thanks to Johansson, the film prevails, giving us a wild and delightfully weird entry in the Scarlett Johansson Sci-Fi Collection.

This week, Scarlett Johansson (‘We Bought a Zoo’) stars as a character named Lucy in a movie called ‘Lucy.’ The advertising campaign makes Luc Besson’s new film look like a mainstream action film – and there is action! – but it’s not quite what you might think it will be.

We know most of us want to see Scarlett Johansson get her own solo Black Widow movie, but that's not gonna happen anytime soon. That said, how about another film about a female ass-kicker with superpowers? A new international 'Lucy' trailer is here to prove ScarJo is about to reach her full potential -- and afterwards all hell will likely break loose.

As the trailer says, mankind isn't ready for Scarlett Johansson's Lucy, and judging by the powers she's tossing around (both with her brain and her body) in Luc Besson's latest sci-fi action thriller, that's pretty accurate. Johansson steps out of the Marvel movie universe and finally gets some superpowers of her own, and she does not look like a lady you want to mess with.

Well, it's no solo Black Widow movie, but a super-powered Scarlett Johnasson? Where to do we buy tickets?
Between 'La Femme Nikita' and 'The Professional,' Luc Besson has a penchant for creating memorable female action heroes. He's looking to add to that roster with this summer's 'Lucy,' which casts Scarlett Johansson as a drug mule who accidentally swallows what she's transporting and finds herself gifted with superpowers. Um, yeah. Okay. We can get behind that premise.
