Transcendence Teaser: Johnny Depp Is Singularity and Loving It

Is everyone pumped for the singularity? We’ll get to live forever and play in sick synth-pop bands with Ray Kurzweil. But what if the singularity is bad? That’s where Transcendence comes in. Directed by Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer Wally Pfister, it tells the story of a brilliant artificial-intelligence researcher, Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp), who goes mad with power trying to achieve singularity. The movie co-stars Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, Clifton Collins Jr., Kate Mara, and Paul Bettany and opens on April 14 of next year. But if you're busy, don’t worry —  you’ll soon have eternity to see it.
