Transcendence Trailer Will Mess With Your Mind

14 February 2014 10:55 AM, PST | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Transcendence trailer may give you a look at a Johnny Depp that you never imagined. The curious sci-fi effort puts Depp in the role of transferred consciousness, and sets him against a group trying to make sure no one ever… does what he already did.

This is a different-looking film, and it showcases the cast awfully well, even if it may have some trouble selling you on what’s going on. One of the coolest parts of the trailer is how it runs toward the weird, possibly starts losing you with the pure oddity of what it shows, and then pulls Morgan Freeman out of the wings, and leaves you thinking, “Oh, well, I guess it’s fine then.”

Whatever your take on the trailer, this is going to be an interesting film.

Check out all the info below, and let me know what you think of this one. »

Johnny Depp’s ‘Transcendence’ Gets New Trailer

11 February 2014 5:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has released the a second official trailer for Johnny Depp’s sci-fier “Transcendence,” two months before its April 17 opening.

Depp portrays a researcher who is uploaded into a computer in the near future after being shot by an anti-technology terrorist group Rift — Revolutionary Independence From Technology. “My mind has been set free,” Depp explains.

Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall and Morgan Freeman also star, with Wally Pfister helming and Alcon producing and financing in association with Dmg Entertainment. Producers are Broderick Johnson, Andrew Kosove, Kate Cohen, Marisa Polvino, Annie Marter, David Valdes and Aaron Ryder.

The experiment apparently goes wrong as an ultra-serious Freeman intones, “If we don’t stop him, it will be the end of mankind as we know it.”

Wally Pfister, cinematographer for Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, along with a number of other high profile titles, makes his directorial debut with Transcendence, from first time screenwriter, Jack Paglen (who purportedly also penned Prometheus 2). Of course, Pfister was able to line up a spectacular cast, so we’re hoping this is a sci-fi flick that has more substance than slick visuals.

Gist: 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. »
