Transcendence — Promo Teasers


added: Thu, Dec 19th '13

Wally Pfister, filmmaker Christopher Nolan's longtime cinematographer, makes his directorial debut with next year's "Transcendence," a head-scratching sci-fi thriller starring Johnny Depp as a brilliant computer scientist who unintentionally gets to prove his controversial theory on Artificial Intelligence by becoming a ghost in the machine.

Warner Bros. just released this small teaser clip, which acts as a graphic promotion for both the film's official website ( and the official theatrical trailer that will be premiering online on Friday. Check it out, above.

UPDATE: two more promo teasers have also been released, which we have attached to the video playlist, above.

Dr. Will Caster 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 and friend Max, 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.
