Johnny Depp’s ‘Transcendence’ Gets New Trailer

Warner Bros. has released the a second official trailer for Johnny Depp’s sci-fier “Transcendence,” two months before its April 17 opening.

Depp portrays a researcher who is uploaded into a computer in the near future after being shot by an anti-technology terrorist group RIFT — Revolutionary Independence From Technology. “My mind has been set free,” Depp explains.

Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall and Morgan Freeman also star, with Wally Pfister helming and Alcon producing and financing in association with DMG Entertainment. Producers are Broderick Johnson, Andrew Kosove, Kate Cohen, Marisa Polvino, Annie Marter, David Valdes and Aaron Ryder.

The experiment apparently goes wrong as an ultra-serious Freeman intones, “If we don’t stop him, it will be the end of mankind as we know it.”

    Looks interesting.
    Think “The X-Files” did an episode based on the exact same concept, back in 1998. “Kill Switch” I think it was called. They were way ahead of the game.
