Scarlett Johansson rounds off turns as a self-aware OS (Her) and an alien predator (Under the Skin) with another sci-fi-tinged part in the latest from French director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element). As a drugs mule-turned-superhero in the movie Lucy (pictured), Johansson brings class to an action role that could reverse Besson’s recent run of flops. Israeli director Ari Folman follows up his debut Waltz With Bashir in similarly eye-catching style. The Congress, loosely based on Stanislaw Lem’s 1971 sci-fi novel The Futurological Congress, is voiced by actors including Robin Wright, Harvey Keitel and Paul Giametti, and creates a landscape that looks like the product of “a genius designer on an acid trip”, according to one character. Another visual trip comes from Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), known for his music videos for the likes of Björk, Daft Punk and Beck. In Mood Indigo, Chloé (Audrey Tatou) suffers from an illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs – it’s been described as “a frothy, dreamlike romantic fantasy spiced by a constant cascade of surprising visual sparks”.
