Johnny Depp becomes Skynet in the upcoming techno-thriller, Transcendence. Directed by long time Christopher Nolan cinematographer, Wally Pfister, Transcendence follows Depp as Dr. Will Caster, a leading expert on AI and the upcoming “singularity” of humanity and technology. His theories and research make him the target for an anti-technology terrorist group called Rift, who attempt to kill Will with a radiation laced bullet. With his body failing, his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and his partner Max (Paul Bettany) upload his consciousness into a computer system and Will becomes the first fully sentient AI. Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy and Kate Mara also co-star. Things get out of control when Will demands more power and more knowledge and could potentially threaten the entire world. The movie is out in April next year and you can check out the trailer below.
