Mind you, it looks like it could be pretty cool. And it's not really any sillier an explanation for superpowers than "bitten by radioactive spider" or "came from a planet with a red sun." Nonetheless, further myth perpetuation....

Strongly reminds me of several A. E. van Vogt short stories with protagonists who are suddenly afflicted with enhanced and increasing mental capacity - in fact, there's one scene there where Scarlett's sorting strings of light which made me immediately think of a story where the protagonist "sees" lines of light connecting people and things, and can directly influence them by touching those lines.

Looks like a fun ride, hope the full movie's as fun as the trailer.
