Technology is a very frightening thing. The steady growth rate at which it moves is unreal. Mankind has a great thirst for what can be unlocked next, while at the same time fearing the dangerous possibilities of what if this technology were to surpass the human mind and "rise up" against us? Director Wally Pfister explores this concept in a very bizarre and mysterious way with his upcoming film TRANSCENDENCE. This sci-fi thriller will explore the unknown and will surely keep us guessing. With the info provided, it has the potential to cause fear. We have two teaser videos as well as the official trailer for you to check out.
The film stars Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Paul Battany, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, Cole Hauser, and Clifton Collins Jr.
"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."
TRANSCENDENCE will hit theaters on April 18, 2014.
