Scarlett Johansson has played many a role on the big screen, but her latest two movies are shaping up to be quite interesting.

Lucy, which comes out July 25th, stars Scarlett Johansson as a drug mule who absorbs some of the drug she is charged with into her system.

This drug allows her to use way more of her brain than the average person. However, this new brain power comes at the expense of her humanity.

Awesomeness ensues...

Scralett Johansson destroys a good chunk of Paris in the movie during a crazy car chase.

She also has the power to slow and speed up time, as well as a few other super-human tricks she keeps up her sleeve.

Watch the trailer:

Scarlett Johansson's Lucy will open at the 67th Locarno Film Festival on August 6th. It looks pretty fantastic, but not as interesting as her new role in the new Coen brothers movie Hail Caesar. She is set to join the likes of Jonah Hill, Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes.

Quite a star-studded movie! Who wouldn' t want to be part of a Coen brothers production, after all?

Scarlett Johansson plays an actress in the 1950's who gets pregnant in Hail Caesar.

It shouldn't be too difficult to play that part, as Scarlett Johansson announced in March that she actually is pregnant with her first child with fiance Romain Dauriac.

Sounds like a full load for the mom-to-be! For now, Scarlett Johansson is just enjoying her work and being engaged. She said of her relationship with Dauriac, "We do different things. He's in the whole art-scene world. So it's nice, because we can enjoy each other's worlds, but we don't have our crazy conflicting schedules and all that other stuff to contend with."

Hopefully she has time to rest between work and romance!
