Warner Bros. has released the first two photos from Transcendence. Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy and Rebecca Hall are featured in this introduction to Wally Pfister's directorial debut, which follows a scientist (Johnny Depp) who tries to upload his brain into a supercomputer. Take a look at these images, then read on to see what Wally Pfister has to say about his sci-fi thriller.
Before transitioning to the director's chair, Wally Pfister was best known as Christopher Nolan's director of photography on Memento, Insomnia, The Dark Knight trilogy, The Prestige and Inception. His directorial debut follows Johnny Depp's character, who is studying "the singularity," the point when artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence. The scientist gets literally uploaded into the mainframe, becoming a ghost in the machine after he is attacked by anti-technology activists. Here's what the director had to say about the story.
"It's a very timely subject as we find we have to update the software on our cell phones before we can even make a call."
"I don't think we've seen him this way in a long time. Just a pair of glasses on and a pretty normal haircut."
