Transcendence

Coming to theaters April 18, Warner Bros' new thriller Transcendence explores what sci-fi buffs everywhere have feared: the Singularity. That is, the moment when artificial intelligence surpasses human intelligence to create a kind of super computer, which may or may not lead to the downfall of humanity. 

Johnny Depp stars as Dr. Will Caster, an artificial intelligence researcher who creates a sentient machine that "combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions," a process he calls "transcendence." 

When anti-technology activists inadvertently make Caster a participant in his own transcendence, and his brain is connected to his invention, his quest for power as a super computer turns deadly.

The film is produced by Broderick Johnson's Alcon Entertainment (Joyful Noise, The Blind Side). 

Below, see Freeman lend his soothing wisdom to the chaos in the new Transcendence featurette:
