On April 18th we will be getting Transcendence! It is starring Johnny Depp, Rebbeca Hall, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphy, Kate Mara, and Morgan Freeman. Wally Pfister, who is Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer (also a lot more), is stepping into the director spot for the first time. From all of his work before I’m sure it will be at least amazing to look at. I was going to write out a summary, but I found out Warner Bros. has already put out a really good one. I’m thankful for this because I was getting worried about how to explain it clearly.

“Sci-Fi Thriller. 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. 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 (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), 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.”(C) Warner

It has my attention especially since it has Nolan’s backing it came with a few known faces. I’m also excited to see Johnny Depp playing this role because I feel like it has been awhile since he wasn’t an eccentric drunk.
