By Josh Wilding - 12/20/2013
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.




Directed by Wally Pfister and starring Johnny Depp Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Cillian Murphy, Clifton Collins, Jr. and Morgan Freeman, Transcendence is set to be released on April 18th, 2014.

I really want to see this movie now!

Everything about these teaser trailers scream high-school film class. Script, music, everything.

Pfister's still a great DP though.

Nope.

So this is basically a Lawnmower Man reboot with Jack Sparrow?
HBarnill - 12/20/2013, 12:06 PM
Yeah! Zoë!

I don't understand how can anyone judge from teasers that doesn't show anything at all from the movie. Weird.

@anthonyEstark

That sort of fuzzy broadcasted message thing is much older than 'You are not alone'.

Remember 'This is not a dream'?

NOLANITE - 12/20/2013, 12:22 PM
Hmmm so this is a crossover with pirates and termintor...
I see.
jerryblake - 12/20/2013, 12:24 PM
i don't get it. Why is she talking about revolution against computer A.I. while sending her message by using an internet ?
maninfinehat - 12/20/2013, 12:25 PM
I feel like I've seen the whole movie just from that summary.
jerryblake - 12/20/2013, 12:26 PM

Because everyone is online, duh!

You have to choose the medium that reaches people the most or you are wasting your time. That means using the manipulative tool to reach the masses.

Let's dig back into another John Carpenter classic for an example. They Live.

Using the TV to send a message about TV mind control.

"That means using the manipulative tool to reach the masses"


Make sense.

You won :)

jerryblake - 12/20/2013, 12:46 PM
by manipulative you meant tyrannical ?
jerryblake - 12/20/2013, 1:01 PM
i mean should we use the same weapon that tyrant is using (internet) to fight him ?

Is that what you meant ?
Humperdink - 12/20/2013, 1:05 PM
Jerry, how did Morpheus and his team try to free humans and take down the Matrix?

They logged into it.
jerryblake - 12/20/2013, 1:13 PM
@Humper

yeah, that makes sense.

nice Matrix comparison
Humperdink - 12/20/2013, 1:18 PM
I get what you mean that the tool is evil, it is, but it's just that all the humans mentally live inside the tool (or are trapped in it), so in order to get them out you have to go into it (or log into it).

It's sort of like you really have no choice.
jerryblake - 12/20/2013, 1:29 PM
but isn't talking about the revolution against the CPU inteligence via internet considered as the wrong move ?
I mean shouldn't they just start the revolution by attack and let people know they are out there, ready, instead of talking about it first ?

jerryblake - 12/20/2013, 1:31 PM
if the threat is real this girl could be dead like in one day
ALmight - 12/20/2013, 1:41 PM
So Terminator meets the matrix?
rjames8s - 12/20/2013, 2:09 PM
Johnny Depp as Johnny Depp as Computer Johnny Depp in a computer. Hopefully Morgan Freeman ca save them from this worm hole of a movie.
Niklander - 12/20/2013, 2:30 PM
Wow this movie really has got me hyped and it has no actual [frick]ing footage
Yousef90 - 12/21/2013, 10:57 PM
@rjames8s So just because Depp is looking normal he is playing himself? Interesting because I don't see him act like that in the real life and this movie doesn't need anyone to save because it's going to be good.
