Olivia Wilde Back from the Dead in the Second 'Lazarus Effect' Trailer
Shortly after the new year, we caught our first glimpse at the new supernatural thriller The Lazarus Effect. In what is essentially a remake of Flatliners, the story follows Olivia Wilde as Zoe, a medical student working on an experiment to regenerate dead tissue. But when she ends up in a fatal accident in the hospital, her boyfriend (Mark Duplass) decides to use their work in an attempt to bring her back from the dead. But something is wrong, and Zoe isn't who she used to be. It's your run of the mill possession thriller, with Wilde taking down her colleagues one by one. Can Duplass bring her back from the darkness? Watch!
Here's the new trailer for David Gelb's The Lazarus Effect from Yahoo:
You can still watch the first trailer for The Lazaurus Effect right here.
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?

Somehow, they managed to make the second trailer worse than the first.

At least it's not half found foutage. But it looks pretty bad. And the name is horribly unoriginal.

It would had been better if she would have said something quippy, like..."bored now".

1. Olivia Wilde is trying to find what type of movies she should do empirically? 2. Isn't this a very similar plot as Lucy, but from a different perspective, and a different identification of causes? I mean, Lucy also almost dies, and starts making neural connections, and becomes super powerful.

Suppose we are talking about the same girl, and the writer of the story is an external person trying to understand what happened, but he doesn't know how the story ends. He sees a woman who got super powers and went out killing people, with huge personality changes. So he might think "demonic possession", and he will interpret her killings one way. He'll say she died and was ressurected. And if its demonic possession, the story ends in an evil manner. He might think "chemical got into her system and she started using more of her brain", and he will interpret her killings another way, she's bringing justice and fairness to the world, and if she's good, then her endgame is something good. With a little bit of creativity and some minor differences in the plot, the same story can go either way.
