Holy hell, three teasers later and we finally have a full length trailer for Wally Pfister's directorial debut TRANSCENDENCE and it doesn't disappoint! While the film may step on familiar ground, it doesn't detract from how absolutely fascinating this techno-thriller looks. The talent of Pfister, who is Christopher Nolan's longtime cinematographer, is on full display here in what is one gorgeous trailer. Dig on it below!
Dr. Will Caster 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 and friend Max, 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 comes from a screenplay by Jack Paglen and stars Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, and Cillian Murphy. It hits theaters on April 18, 2014.
