He will visit the Chinese capital Beijing for two days to promote “Transcendence,” which has backing from Warner Bros., Alcon Entertainment and U.S.-Chinese group DMG.

The film is set for a near simultaneous release in North America and China, with Warner Bros handling distribution stateside from April 17. DMG handling China will announce a date shortly.
