The Lazarus Effect released it’s first trailer and Olivia Wilde looks wild in the trailer.
Written by Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater, The Lazarus Effect isn’t just visions of a dark past, it seems. Here, Mark Duplass, Donald Glover, Evan Peters and Wilde essay a group of students experimenting with dead tissue and the ability to resurrect it. An unfortunate accident leads Wilde’s character to be the first human tested, and upon her return, a hellish fury comes with her.
There’s plenty of demonic anguish, supernatural phenomena and stings in this first preview, but it seems undeniable the most evocative image is that of a newly resurrected Wilde sitting up, still shrouded in a sheet. Hopefully director David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi) delivers much more on that front.
Release Date February 27.
