With tech thriller Transcendence out this year, Hollywood seems to be revisiting its 90s fascination with virtual reality, Ryan writes...
Like seasons, hairstyles and fashion, genre popularity in Hollywood runs in cycles. Historical epics have faded in and out of favour since the 1930s, for example, and appear to be on the rise again, with Ridley Scott’s Exodus, Darren Aronofsky’s Noah and two movies based on the Hercules legend all on the horizon. It's not just historical epics making a comeback, either. With Wally Pfister's directorial debut Transcendence, we could be in for a mini revival of the cyber thrillers of the 1990s.
If you don't know anything about Transcendence yet, you can catch up with the first trailer here. Briefly, it's about a scientist (Johnny Depp) who's killed by terrorists shortly after completing some groundbreaking research into machine intelligence. Grief stricken, »
