First Teaser Trailer For Wally Pfister's TRANSCENDENCE Released

Containing only a single shot of Johnny Depp's face along with some very intriguing dialogue, the first trailer for The Dark Knight Trilogy's cinematographer Wally Pfister directorial debut has been released. Hit the jump for a first look at Transcendence!

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.

Looks ok. Feels like a Terminator movie IMO. Or is it just me?
DrunkenNukem - 12/19/2013, 10:35 AM

ALmazing - 12/19/2013, 10:39 AM
All I am going to say is that if you don't want Matrix comparisons, don't use green binary.

Hahahahahahahaha, "AnalThrasher69". I hope he at least brushes his f*cking tongue when he's finished with 'em.

It's the gentlemanly thing to do, dammit. Halitosis scares off the ladies, an' kills trees.

That was a trailer of old... 90s and 2000s teasers with all these numbers and crap.

Que the Depp hate by all the prattling twats. Dude is good in everything, and never plays it safe. I love just about everything he does. Not a great teaser trailer, but not many teaser trailers are great. Really looking forward to this movie.
