What’s new MMT Family? I just had to share this trailer for the new sci-fi thriller Transcendence with you all! Posing the question “What if a new intelligence was born?” the film tells the story of a terminally ill scientist whose mind is downloaded into a computer, which makes him extremely powerful and a threat to mankind as we know it.
Opening in theaters on April 17, the film stars Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, and Rebecca Hall; and features an appearance by actor Cory Hardrict (husband of actress Tia Mowry-Hardrict). I won’t lie, the movie had me with starring Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman; but it really had me when I saw the below trailer! Check it out for yourself and read the below synopsis.
You can get more info about the film at the official website here. Let me know what you think of the trailer?
Until next thought family, Thomasena
Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) 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 (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), 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.
