First TRANSCENDENCE Clip Asks, "Can You Prove You're Self Aware?"

First TRANSCENDENCE Clip Asks, "Can You Prove You're Self Aware?"

Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman ask each other a difficult question in the first clip from Wally Pfister's directorial debut, Transcendence. Also, come check out three new television spots.

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.

TRANSCENDENCE - directed by Wally Pfister, from a screenplay written by Jack Paglen. Christopher Nolan and his wife Emma Thomas are Executive Producers. The cast includes: Johnny Depp Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Cillian Murphy, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Morgan Freeman. In theaters and IMAX on April 18.

I'm more excited to see this than Amazing Spider-Man 2. I feel like I saw every good part of Spidey and I know virtually nothing about this film. Congrats Nolan for not over indulging us this time.

Transcendence vs Interstellar. I don't know which will be better but I assume Interstellar. Nolan needs an Oscar this year.

This looks like an intelligent film.

Looks like a Nolan film.

Neither was Gravity.

It does have Oscar bait themes in its premise.

@nailbiter111- How would you know that Interstellar isn't Oscar material when we have seen nothing on it? Most people probably thought that Gravity wasn't either. Also Interstellar has Matthew McConaughey in it who just won best actor.

I'm hoping this movie delivers, Looks like a film people will not rush to watch but will end up being good nonetheless.

Interstellar is a film I can't wait for as well, It looks to be another game changer. The cast is phenomenal the team Nolan has on his side for that movie is great, I'm sure it'll deliver.

If someone cries or gets beat up on the premise of adultery or some kind of domestic tomfoolery in this movie then and only then will it pop up on the Oscar radar.
If not, Ooops!
