Check out six new images and a swingin’ new poster for Wally Pfister’s “Transcendence,” or “Jack Sparrow Becomes Skynet” to those of you in the know. The film stars Johnny Depp as a crazy scientist type whose brain gets uploaded to the Internets after he gets shot. That, uh, doesn’t quite go as planned. Well, it sorta does, I guess you could say. Bottom line? You don’t wanna be giving Jack Sparrow control of the Interwebs. He’s kind of wacky, that guy.
Anyhoo. Take a gander at the new poster and images from the movie below, take a ganderers.
Dr. Will Caster 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 and best friend Max Waters, 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.
Starring Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy, Clifton Collins, Cole Hauser, and Josh Stewart.
