The first full trailer has arrived online for Transcendence, Wally Pfister’s directorial debut, in which Johnny Depp strives to demonstrate the full potential of artificial intelligence.
The new film casts Depp as a scientist obsessed with creating a machine capable of human emotion, only to find himself the target of violent anti-tech activists.
A gunshot wound with a radiation-laced bullet looks to spell curtains for Depp, until his wife (Rebecca Hall) comes up with the bright idea of “uploading” his consciousness to create the machine he has long been dreaming about…
Take a look at the new trailer, below…
The cinematography looks as gorgeous (with Pfister handing those duties to Jess Hall), and if the plot sounds a little outlandish, it certainly seems an intriguing prospect.
Co-starring Paul Bettany, Kate Mara, Cillian Murphy and Morgan Freeman, Transcendence will open in the UK on 25 April 2014.
