Scarlett Johansson Kicks Ass in ‘Lucy’ Trailer

Lucy, from Luc Besson (The Fifth Element), starring Scarlett Johansson, is action-packed and intriguing despite sharing a lot of plot points with the ultra sh*tty Bradley Cooper movie Limitless, about brain power…

After mobster types implant “a bag of drugs” in her stomach, ScarJo kicks mo’ better ass than Black Widow and starts asking questions of a certain freckled scientist (Morgan Freeman) about her newfound abilities.
  
It makes me immensely happy to see ultra bubbly/charismatic Analeigh Tipton, who appears briefly in the trailer as a friend of Lucy’s, of America’s Next Top Model (and then Crazy, Stupid, Love, Hung and Warm Bodies) getting so many roles.  Continue reading “Scarlett Johansson Kicks Ass in ‘Lucy’ Trailer”

B.o.B’s ‘Strange Clouds’ Featuring Morgan Freeman?

The man who brought us “Airplanes,” “Nothin’ On You” and “Magic” with radio-friendly guests Haley Williams, Bruno Mars and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo is about to drop his second album, Strange Clouds.

Acclaimed rapper B.o.B’s latest, out May 1st, is chock-full of a-list appearances. Taylor Swift on “Both Of Us,” Chris Brown and T.I. on “Arena,” Nicki Minaj for “Out Of My Mind,” and Morgan Freeman on the intro track “Bombs Away?”

Don’t get too excited, Ellis Redding/God/Hoke Colburn probably won’t be rapping or singing. One can only assume it’s a narration type of situation. (I didn’t mean for that to rhyme)
