Earlier today, Warner Bros. debuted the first teaser from Transcendence, which didn't show any actual footage, but featured the voice of Johnny Depp, who plays scientist Will Caster in this sci-fi thriller. The studio has released yet another teaser, with Morgan Freeman providing the narration this time around, teasing the dangers of artificial intelligence and what might happen if A.I. becomes self-aware. However, we still don't see any scenes from the movie. The story centers on Will Caster (Johnny Depp), who uploads his brain into a supercomputer while being attacked by anti-technology terrorists.
Dr. Will Caster is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed-to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn and friend Max, both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can... but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will's thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power-to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.
