'Transcendence' Arrives In Theaters On April 17

TRANSCENDENCE stars Johnny Depp, Kate Mara and Morgan Freeman.

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. Alcon Entertainment presents “Transcendence,” starring Oscar® nominee Johnny  Depp (“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” “Finding Neverland,” the  “Pirates of the Caribbean” films), Paul Bettany (“The Da Vinci Code,” “A  Beautiful Mind”), Rebecca Hall (“The Town,” “The Prestige”), Kate Mara (“House  of Cards,” “Shooter”), Cillian Murphy (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight Rises”),  Clifton Collins, Jr. (“Star Trek,” “Pacific Rim”) and Oscar® winner Morgan  Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby,” the “Dark Knight” movies). “Transcendence” marks the feature film directorial debut of Oscar®-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister (“Inception,” the “Dark Knight” movies).
