Watch: Johnny Depp Discusses 'Transcendence' in Monologue Teaser
After some first look photos surfaced recently, the very first teaser trailer for Wally Pfister's sci-fi flick Transcendence has arrived, and we still don't have any footage from the movie itself. Seemingly taking cues from his Dark Knight trilogy and Inception collaborator Christopher Nolan, this is a true teaser trailer using computer code and binary numbers as visuals while Johnny Depp talks about the ever increasing rate at which technology grows, overshadowing every human being on the planet, leading to a concept that many call a singularity. However, Depp's character calls it transcendence. We're at least intrigued. Watch!.
Here's the teaser trailer for Wally Pfister's Transcendence, originally from Apple:
Transcendence is directed by Wally Pfister (cinematographer on Inception and The Dark Knight trilogy) and written by Jack Paglen, with rewrites by Alex Paraskevas & Jordan Goldberg. 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. When anti-technology extremists threaten his life, they inadvertently trigger a quick move towards his transcendence, and Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. Warner Bros will be releasing Transcendence in theaters on April 18th next year.
