First trailer for Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp


When I posted the teasers a few days ago, I wondered why Transcendence hadn't been on my radar until then. It promised a neat film about a man who bonds with a super intelligence and goes all Skynet on everyone. But with the first full trailer for the film (debut directorial by Wall Pfister, Christopher Nolan's cinematographer), I'm not so sure anymore. 

It stars Johnny Depp as a skew on Steve Jobs yet becomes so generic by the end of the trailer. Maybe it's because I've seen so many super computer films before, but when the super intelligence becomes as corrupt as you'd think it would, it's boring. Doesn't help that the final imagery is damn generic too. Let's hope Transcendence is better as a full film when it hits April 18th next year.
