Johnny Depp is Still Loading on Pixelated New 'Transcendence' Poster

This spring, Johnny Depp will become one with a computer in Transcendence, and the second trailer for the directorial debut from cinematographer Wally Pfister certainly showed off the scale of this technological thriller. The film isn't too far away from hitting theaters, and now the hype machine is getting a little more generic and safe in trying to get audiences interested. A new poster has just arrived and it makes full use of Depp's handsome face, but almost as if the poster was accessed by dial-up, half of the image is pixelated. I still think this film feels like a 90s thriller with contemporary technology, but we'll see.
Here's the new poster for Wally Pfister's Transcendence from Yahoo:
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 starting on April 18th. So?

Loving everything about this poster and looking forward to seeing this movie. Pfister is a fan of the Soylent Green-era sci-fi, hence the look.

Get a bad feeling from this movie, mostly due to Depps involvement.

Shut up please, it looks great and he looks great in the role.

You sure know how to react to differing opinions. Name one thing he has done since Pirates that was any good. Rango and Sweeny Todd. Other than that a bunch of flops and the Pirates movies.

I like how his lips & eyes randomly have slightly smaller pixels to make sure you get the full DeppEffect™.
