Our first peek at the Dark Knight cinematographer's directorial debutS

We're excited that regular Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister is picking up the director's mantle for his debut film, Transcendence. And now we get a very tiny look at what is going on in Pfister's movie world.

Transcendence stars Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy, Paul Bettany, and Kate Mara and features a conflict between an anti-technology group and a trio of scientists working on a self-aware computer. Depp plays Max, one of the scientists, who is married to fellow researcher Evelyn (Hall). After Max is assassinated by anti-technology terrorists, Evelyn uploads his brain into a prototype supercomputer. The photo above, via Deadline, shows our leads on set.

The brief featurette below, which was created for Chinese audiences, also gives us a few flashes of Pfister's pre-production mapping:

There's also a Chinese teaser poster, although it doesn't reveal much:
