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.

Is it me or does Johnny Depp become Brainiac!?

First trailer for Guard... oh. Nevermind. Still looks interesting. A lot of Marvel and DC actors united.
MrCBM56 - 2/11/2014, 4:41 PM
Holy shit. This is becoming a must-see for me. This looks amazing.

But I must admit, this doesn't seem as complex as I would hope it would've been.

remind me lawnmower man :)
InfiniteMonkey - 2/11/2014, 4:54 PM
Can't wait to see this.
Wasn't there another movie quite a number of years ago with Pierce Brosnan in it that dealt with something similar to this?

InfiniteMonkey - 2/11/2014, 4:55 PM
Haaa! @Polygame
Just as I hit enter you came on line and said it. Yeah Lawnmower Man. LOL

Thanks mate.
JamesMan - 2/11/2014, 4:56 PM
I like it, it's got layers like an onion. Like a pie. Like a cake.
KidGoku - 2/11/2014, 4:56 PM
Can't wait for the Man of Steel fan made trailers using Johnny Depp for Braniac :)
JoJo1982 - 2/11/2014, 4:56 PM

PHister?! I hardly know her!

They kind of showed us the entire movie. Taking over mankind seems a bit silly too. WE ALREADY HAVE SKYNET!
MightyZeus - 2/11/2014, 5:14 PM
I'm looking forward to this movie.

It seems sophisticated and interesting.
MexicanChinman - 2/11/2014, 5:15 PM
@StanKirby, why? Is it because Pfishter said the Avenger's cinematography was terrible? If so, grow a pair.
dacage - 2/11/2014, 5:16 PM
I swear I thought this was Nolan film
Joemanimator - 2/11/2014, 5:20 PM

JoeMomma29 - 2/11/2014, 5:27 PM

revloveR - 2/11/2014, 5:29 PM
I'm just going to pretend that this is braniac begins, that that atlantis movie cuaron's kid is going to make is aquaman and that interstellar is a rebooted gl. :(
nowtheresaBATman - 2/11/2014, 5:35 PM
Refreshing to see Depp not playing some silly character for a change.

Loved him in The 9th Gate & From Hell...& it goes w/o saying F&LinLV.
SpiderJerusalem - 2/11/2014, 5:36 PM
Looks meh, like it would have been good if it came out in 1999,it has a late 90's vibe,like jodie foster should be in it.so meh for me.
Alexandre - 2/11/2014, 5:36 PM
Robots will be able to grow weed.

WOOOOOOOOW
marvel72 - 2/11/2014, 5:39 PM

novaprime - 2/11/2014, 5:43 PM

ManCalledSting - 2/11/2014, 5:49 PM
Movie of the year?
Omarvls - 2/11/2014, 5:51 PM
Brianiac? Ultron? Lawnmower man?
OdinsMissingEye - 2/11/2014, 5:53 PM
This trailer is very enjoyable to watch if you imagine it's an origin story for Electro.
nowtheresaBATman - 2/11/2014, 6:01 PM
I'd love to give Kate Mara something to download.
Hellboy6666 - 2/11/2014, 6:06 PM
This douche made some pretty pretentious comments on Avengers so I will be pirating this film...I mean I will see this completely legitimately and legally...yeah. Don't be a douche Pfister, you have no credibility beyond your cinematography and just because your talented doesn't entitle you to be a dick.

That said I do think this at least looks like a film for sure, with actors and a script and everything! Good luck to everyone involved.

Off topic but where the Fu$& are the Lovecraft adaptations?
Scorpion8125 - 2/11/2014, 6:19 PM
Not anything original, but it looks good.

I just hope I can soon stop throwing up from tool Depp's crapfest Lone Ranger.
