New 'Transcendence' Trailer Finds Johnny Depp A Little Artificial-Intelligence Happy

CBM Trailers

"This isn't evolution. It's an abomination," Morgan Freeman informs Johnny Depp in the new trailer for "Transcendence." It looks like the velvet-voiced sage is going head-to-head with the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star in the forthcoming artificial-intelligence thriller. Depp plays Dr. Will Caster, a researcher who's working to create a sentient machine that surpasses human intelligence. Naturally, he's up against a motherload of opposition. When Caster faces death and wants to become a part of that machinery, even his wife (Rebecca Hall) and best friend (Paul Bettany) think he's gone too far.

"Transcendence" opens April 18. It's directed by Wally Pfister, who is known for his cinematography work on Christopher Nolan's movies. Watch the new trailer below.
