The first official images have arrived online for Transcendence , the directorial debut from Wally Pfister, giving us a first look at Johnny Depp and some of the rest of his assembled co-stars.
The new film casts Depp as an expert in Artificial Intelligence, whose life’s work is to create a sentient machine capable of human emotion.
An intriguing line of work then, but a controversial one, and it isn’t long before Depp’s character is targeted by anti-technology extremists.
However, their interference only serves to provide the final piece in the jigsaw, as Depp himself undergoes the “transcendence” that finally brings his work to fruition...
The new images give us a look at Depp’s character both pre and post transcendence, while also giving us some idea of the visual aesthetic Pfister has gone for. Shiny sci-fi goodness, ahoy!
Co-starring Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy and Paul Bettany, Transcendence will open in the UK on 25 April 2014.
