Film Trailers: TRANSCENDENCE
The directorial debut from Oscar winning cinematographer and constant DP for Christopher Nolan since Memento, Wally Pfister is Transcendence and a the teaser trailer dropped today. Looks good, even though I really have no idea what is going on here. Something with artificial intelligence and sentient beings. The power of computers and programmers and how it might transcend the powers of the human brain and take human beings... I don't know. It looks good and I am really glad Johnny Depp, who is always good, but has been on an annoying Disney/Hollywood blockbuster binge of late, is acting in something a little different and that looks like a challenge. Creepy image of him at the end of the trailer. The rest of the cast is superb, including Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara, Cillian Murphy, Rebecca Hall and Paul Bettany. The film should be released on April 18, 2014. Here is the trailer. Enjoy.
