First Look: Johnny Depp becomes a menace to society in 'Transcendence'

Take a two-minute glimpse into the world of 'Transcendence', a futuristic thriller from Wally Pfister, the Oscar-winning cinematographer behind 'Inception'.

Johnny Depp, a charismatic and controversial artificial intelligence expert, is being pursued by a group of anti-technology extremists.

In their view, the rising robotic threat is so severe that armed intervention is an appropriate response, to the point of attempting a hit on Depp's character, Dr. Will Caster.

The only problem is that such actions drive Caster closer to the ultimate symbiosis of man and machine, with disastrous results.

Playing alongside Depp are Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphy, Morgan Freeman and Kate Mara.

'Transcendence' opens in cinemas 17 April
