Morgan Freeman Talks Transcendence, Working with Wally Pfister on His Directorial Debut, the Success of The Lego Movie, Lucy, Future Projects, and More

19 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now playing in theaters is Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence.  The film revolves around a group of scientists trying to build the first self-aware supercomputer, and when lead researcher Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) becomes the target of anti-technology extremists, he unexpectedly becomes a participant in his own transcendence.  Rebecca Hall and Paul Bettany play two of Will’s fellow researchers, and as we’ve seen from the trailer, they have conflicting viewpoints on turning their co-worker into a computer.  The film also stars Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser, and Clifton Collins Jr.  For more on Transcendence, click here to watch some clips and here's all our previous coverage. Last week at the Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive interview with Freeman.  He talked about how he got involved in the project, working with Pfister, if he thinks great directors share some common traits, if directors get intimidated working with him, »

'Transcendence' - stylish off-beat film (Ians Movie Review - ***)

18 April 2014 12:58 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Film: "Transcendence"; Cast: Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphy, Kate Mara, Cole Hauser, Morgan Freeman, Clifton Collins Jr. and Cory Hardrict; Director: Wally Pfister; Rating: ***

A tragic love story, constructed on the foundation of, "heal the planet for a better future for all of us", "Transcendence" gives an insight of what would happen to the primitive organic life or "the soul after death". In other words, it is the scientific and technological interpretation of life after death.

Seriously, bordering on ethical issues, this futuristic science-fiction film is laced with romance and political nuances. It is thought-provoking and at the same time a daunting film, suggesting that the internet and technology. »

Transcendence Review

17 April 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Transcendence is a visually impressive film sporting perfectly framed shots and wondrous staging, as veteran cinematographer Wally Pfister transitions into his first directorial role, but while cameras capture every moment with graceful whimsy, Pfister struggles to bring life to this techno thriller beyond captivating aesthetics. As a cinematographer, it wasn’t Wally’s job to ensure characters exhibited life, or to curate a narrative story that seamlessly flows from scene to scene – a lesson unfortunately learned the hard way. What starts as a looming, informative warning for our technologically obsessed social doomsday machine ends up being nothing but a convoluted love story between some computer program and a widow in denial. Transcendence could have been a more grounded version of the Terminator movies, but ends up being a two hour long public service announcement about The Evil Internet that’s about as entertaining as reading binary code.

'Transcendence' Review: 10 Things to Know About the Johnny Depp Sci-Fi Movie

17 April 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

We are obsessed with technology. This much is true. Between our cell phones and tablets and home computers and whatever else we have in our home that whirs, beeps, or produces faint electromagnetic waves, it sometimes feels like we have a more intimate relationship with our things than the people in our lives. And this has long been the realm of speculative science fiction, which wonders what would happen if that love affair with technology turned really, really dark.

The latest example of this is Warner Bros' new sci-fi epic "Transcendence," which is about the nature of humanity and all of the cumbersome fleshiness that goes with it, and concerns a mad scientist (Johnny Depp) who, after getting poisoned by a radioactive bullet (don't ask) has his consciousness uploaded to a computer which results, of course, in some unintended consequences.

"Transcendence" aims to be a genre-defining, soul-searching movie like "Blade Runner" or "Her. »

Transcendence – Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser, Cillian Murphy

16 April 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Directed by: Wally Pfister Written by: Jack Paglen Main Cast: Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser, Cillian Murphy, and others Past Oscar relations: Pfister won Best Cinematography for Inception and Morgan Freeman won Best Supporting Actor for Million Dollar Baby Here now we have the next article in this series on 2014 contenders hoping to compete for Oscar attention at the Academy Award ceremony in 2015. Next up is Dp turned filmmaker Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence, which hopes to more or less establish Pfister as the next Christopher Nolan (especially since he’s Nolan’s longtime cinematographer), though that may be a somewhat overly optimistic ambition. There’s clearly a bit of Nolan in Pfister though, so we’ll see. He’s got a top notch cast in place here, including Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman (a Nolan veteran), Cole Hauser, »

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening Of Transcendence In St. Louis

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 »

Watch 7 Clips and 13 Minutes of Behind-the-Scenes Footage from Transcendence

6 April 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Wally Pfister’s upcoming directorial debut Transcendence opening April 18th, Warner Bros. has provided us with seven clips and thirteen minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the movie.  The film revolves around a group of scientists trying to build the first self-aware supercomputer, and when lead researcher Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) becomes the target of anti-technology extremists, he unexpectedly becomes a participant in his own transcendence.  Pfister has done excellent work as a cinematographer in recent years with films like The Dark Knight, Inception, and Moneyball, but the big question is can he make the leap to the director's chair.  So far the marketing materials have promised Transcendence is a smart, sci-fi-tinged thriller, and I'm very curious what audiences are going to think. Hit the jump to watch the clips and behind-the-scenes footage.  The film also stars Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser, »

New Photos From Wally Pfister’s Transcendence – Stars Johnny Depp

4 April 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Set in a not-too-distant future, Transcendence explores the very real possibility that humans—in our attempts to create a better, more efficient, more self-sustaining world through technology—can go too far. For emotions are not always positive: doesn’t a machine that has the capacity for kindness also have the capacity for menace?

Wally Pfister, a renowned cinematographer making his feature directorial debut on the film, states, “I was struck by the power and the weight of the ideas in this story, which I think are very much on people’s minds right now.”

Transcendence” proposes that we can achieve what’s been called singularity. Pfister comments, “As we define it for the film, singularity is basically the uploading of the human brain into a super computer: the duplication of every synapse, every neuron…every bit of activity in the brain goes into a machine, which then becomes sentient.”
