In ‘Transcendence,’ 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. Also starring Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser, Kate Mara, Clifton Collins Jr, Cory Hardrict and Cillian Murphy, ‘Transcendence’ hits the big screen on April 17th in the US and April 25th in the UK. Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister is making his directional debut.
The movie poses a number of questions within its sci-fi storyline, showcasing some scenarios about the effects that advancing, evolving technologies might have on our culture and on us as individuals. I can imagine that was that something that grabbed your attention when you read the script….?
Johnny Depp: Yeah. I think it’s a very unique film in a sense that it’s foretelling what is to come in a number of ways. It’s not like, “Ooh, this might happen. We might be able to do this one day…. 100 years, 200 years away maybe.” No, this is technology that will be in use – and is in use to some degree today. But it will be in full use in 30 or 40 years. It’s our future. People have been fighting wars over “my god is better than your god” for thousands of years. In the 21st century, I think it’s appropriate to look at the way human beings worship technology and what that could mean for our future. Whether you’re on the side of technology or ecology, a pacifist or an extremist, most people have very definite opinions, and the question of how far we should allow our dependence on computers to go is a question that needs to be asked.
