First Photo + International Poster for Wally Pfister's 'Transcendence'
It's time for our long-awaited first look! Alas it's only a set photo, an official one thankfully, but we're still waiting to see some real footage from this highly anticipated sci-fi film. Our friends at The Film Stage have come across the first photo, international poster and a very short behind-the-scenes featurette for Wally Pfister's Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall. It's not a major reveal, but it is our first official bit of some marketing which hopefully means more is on the way soon. Maybe they'll surprise us with a trailer at Comic-Con? Only time will tell. Until then, this is our initial introduction so take a look.
Here's the set photo and international teaser poster found on Mtime teasing Wally Pfister's Transcendence:
Here's the very short international "featurette" showing a few behind-the-scenes moments from the film:
The plot is still being kept under wraps, but leaked details emerged a few months ago indicate the film will follow three scientists - Max (Bettany), and the husband and wife team of Will and Evelyn (Depp and Hall) - as they develop a programming code for the first self-aware computer. But when a group of anti-technology terrorists try to assassinate the husband, his wife helps upload his brain into a prototype supercomputer. Alcon Entertainment is financing and producing Transcendence. The screenplay was written by Jack Paglen, with rewrites by Alex Paraskevas & Jordan Goldberg. Cinematography Wally Pfister is making his feature directing debut. Warner Bros will be releasing Transcendence in theaters on April 18th next year.
