The Shot Behind the Shot: Lucy (2014)

Lucy Shot Behind the Shot

In Luc Besson’s Lucy (2014), the titular character (played by Scarlett Johansson) acquires super-human abilities when a drug overdose expands the percentage of her brain able to be used past the standard 10 percent. In this shot, Johansson telekinetically dispatches a corridor full of black-suited henchmen by sending them flying to the ceiling. The top two images show the set-up used to achieve the effect; the bottom frame is the final shot from the film.
