Say what you want about Johnny Depp, but he is one of the most popular actors in the world, and in our opinion, rightfully so. His latest, Transcendence, has released the first two photos from the upcoming film that also stars Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy and Kate Mara.
Transcendence follows Depp’s Dr. Will Caster who is trying to build the first self-teaching supercomputer. When those that fear what it could bring (a Terminator-type revolution, perhaps?!) learn of his experiments, he is labeled an extremist. To prove them wrong, he does what he can to show that his research is safe. He then, inadvertently, becomes the subject of his own experiment of transcendence.
“It’s a very timely subject as we find we have to update the software on our cell phones before we can even make a call,” director Wally Pfister (cinematographer for Inception) tells Entertainment Weekly, where the photos debuted.
Look for Transcendence in theaters in 2D and IMAX on April 18, 2014.
