Johnny Depp Explains ‘Transcendence’ in New Featurette

In the upcoming Transcendence, Johnny Depp portrays Will Caster, a scientist studying an advanced method of artificial intelligence known as singularity, although his work takes on a whole new meaning after he nearly dies at the hands of anti-technology extremists. Warner Bros. has released a new featurette with Johnny Depp breaking down this high-concept premise, where Will's brain is uploaded into a computer following the attack. We also hear from co-stars Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara and Paul Bettany, who reveal that this type of technology is only 30 years away from being a reality. Producers Andrew A. Kosove, Broderick Johnson, screenwriter Jack Paglen and director Wally Pfister also discuss the moral implications of this technology being implemented in modern society, along with brand new footage. In addition, we also have six new photos from this sci-fi thriller, arriving in theaters April 18.
