Mark Duplass & Olivia Wilde Play God in 'The Lazarus Effect' Trailer
"If we're gonna be asking big questions, we have to be ready for the answers." Why anyone would want to mess with bringing people back from the dead after movies have already illustrated what a bad idea that would be is beyond me. But here we are with The Lazarus Effect, a movie that basically feels like a remake of Flatliners. Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass star in the film about a group of medical students who have been experimenting with bringing animals back from the dead. And when Wilde ends up in a fatal accident, she becomes a prime candidate to be the first human trial, but the results are not good in the least. Also, does the title remind anyone else of this pivotal scene in Casper? Just me? Okay. Watch the trailer!
Here's the first trailer for David Gelb's The Lazarus Effect from Relativity Media:
The Lazarus Effect is directed by David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi) and written by Luke Dawson (Shutter) and Jeremy Slater (2015's Fantastic Four). Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, Donald Glover and Evan Peters play a group of medical students experimenting with dead tissue and the ability to resurrect it. But when an accident leads to Zoe's (Wilde) death, Frank (Duplass) decides to bring her back after a successful experiment in bringing back a dog seemed to go well. However, with Wilde's resurrection comes terror, fire and death. Relativity Media releases the film late next month on February 27th. Anyone interested?
