Trivia / Lucy

Go To

  • Actor Allusion:
    • Director allusion - when Lucy is in Times Square, a poster for Luc Besson's The Family can be seen.
    • Another one. Luc Besson wrote the film Three Days To Kill - which featured an uncredited woman being tattooed. The same woman appears here as a tattoo artist, sporting a tattoo of the Mexican Lady of Guadalupe.
  • Bad Export for You: There are scenes that were filmed in IMAX, and yet the United States didn't get the IMAX version.

  • Creator Cameo: Luc Besson appears as a doctor in the Paris hospital, and is later among those shot by Mr Jang's gang.
  • Dawson Casting: Downplayed. Scarlett Johansson is four years older than her character, whose birth date is listed as 1988.
  • Development Hell: The script took nine years to make. Luc Besson says this is the reason for the 90% of Your Brain trope - which he found out was nonsense but kept it for Rule of Cool.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Lucy grossed over $40 million in France, and is the highest grossing film there for the last twenty years.
  • Jossed: A rumour circulated that Angelina Jolie was the original choice for Lucy. Luc Besson has denied these claims, saying he only met with a couple of actresses for the part. Scarlett Johansson was also cast almost immediately after meeting him.

  • What Could Have Been: Milla Jovovich, Luc Besson's ex-wife and frequent Muse back in the 90s, was considered for Lucy. However she was pregnant at the time, so she was not asked.

How well does it match the trope?
