We've been on pins and needles waiting for more information on Wally Pfister's directorial debut, Transcendence. And now we finally have a glimpse into the world Chris Nolan's brilliant cinematographer has created.
Entertainment Weekly has a collection of images from the new film (see them in high-res at their website).
The official synopsis was just released this week and it sounds awesome:
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.
We cannot wait for more to come out on this one. SEND US A TRAILER! Transcendence hits theaters on April 18th, 2014.
