The week’s ‘Hottie Of The Week’ goes to the current queen of the box office, the star of the action thriller LUCY, the beautiful and talented SCARLETT JOHANSSON!
The box office success of ‘Lucy’ this past weekend pretty much cemented Scarlett as the next big Hollywood action heroine that can carry an action film (since Angelina Jolie). ‘Lucy’ went above and beyond all expectations by scoring a $44 million opening weekend and surpassing ‘Hercules’ starring action king DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON to take the #1 spot.
Born in 1984, Scarlett got her big break starring in 2003’s critically acclaimed film LOST IN TRANSLATION, which won her a BAFTA Award and a nomination for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.
In 2005, she started her first foray into the action genre by starring in MICHAEL BAY’s THE ISLAND. But the role that really propelled her into the action heroine stratosphere was ‘Black Widow’ in 2008’s IRON MAN.
She went on to reprise her role as ‘Black Widow’ in IRON MAN 2, THE AVENGERS, and most recently in this summer’s blockbuster hit CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER.
Scarlett will play S.H.I.E.L.D. agent ‘Black Widow’ once again in next summer’s AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.
She is currently pregnant with her first child, so an extended break from her film career is very likely. But expect her to bounce back into secret agent shape as THE AVENGERS 3 (expected to be release in 2017) and possibly a BLACK WIDOW solo film could be in the works.
