Here we have the second full length trailer for Transcendance, the new film from director Wally Pfister, who formerly worked as Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer and I think its shows.
The film stars Johnny Depp as a scientist who is shot and the only hope of saving him is to upload his mind into a computer. It reminds me of The Lawnmower Man but I’m sure this film will be a lot better than that! I just hope that these trailers aren’t giving too much away.
Transcendance opens in the US on 17th April, UK on 25th April.
Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.
