Johnny Depp stars alongside Rebecca Hall in the new sci-fi thriller 'Transcendence', directed by Wally Pfister and produced by Christopher Nolan.
This new flic goes down the rise of artificial intelligence route. Johnny Depp plays Will Caster, a scientist who becomes terminally ill and, in a last resort, downloads his mind onto a super-computer, endowing him with the power far beyond anything the world has ever seen before. And not in the good way.
Hall, plays Depp's wife, a woman that becomes torn between saving her husband and saving the world.
Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy, Paul Bettany and Kate Mara co-star beside Hall and Depp. A decent 'auld cast, it has to be said.
I would be inclined to say that this is not based on reality/potential reality. But, if we're being honest with each other, we're all scared shitless of robots taking over the world. This could be the future, lads. Y'heard it here first.
Here's the new trailer, have a gawk before it hits our cinemas on the 25th of April this year.
