This morning, we got our first taste of Wally Pfister’s feature directorial debut Transcendence by way of a pretty enigmatic teaser trailer.  Pfister took a page out of longtime collaborator Christopher Nolan’s book (Pfister served as Nolan’s cinematographer for many years) by offering up a teaser trailer that shows no actual footage from the film, and now Warner Bros. has released a second teaser for the film.  Though this video doesn’t show any footage either, it does have Morgan Freeman talking about the singularity.

Hit the jump to watch the second teaser, and click here to watch the first teaser.  The film also stars Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Cillian Murphy, and Clifton Collins Jr.Transcendence opens in 2D and IMAX on April 17, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for 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.

    what happens when artificial intelligence becomes self aware??? uhm, how about matrix, terminator, ia, i robot, etc…, and most recently almost human, just to mention a few

    • Jason Richards

      What’s your point?

    • Gojiro

      You forgot Colossus: the Forbin Project, Proteus from the film Demon Seed, that stupid AI on the Citadel . . .

    • Man pippy

      They are going the Ghost in the Shell route, once a.i becomes sentient it wants to become one with a human mind and body.

  • Mixed Race rich kid NYC

    It’s a shame that Johnny Depp is taking everyone down with him in whats sure to be a flop
    By the way, what’s a spe-cheese?
    Did he meant species?

    • Willy Billy

      God you are the most annoying troll ever! This movie is going to be a hit so deal with it and get a life you loser!

  • Strong Enough

    corny shit, but i still want to see the movie

    • partysub

      exactly. i’m sick of these stupid “deep” monologues.

  • 80sRobot

    These trailers make me think of INCEPTION, which could be good or bad, either way. (I like INCEPTION.) It makes me speculate this will be a high-minded take on Lawnmower Man where Johnny Depp’s character, a dying AI scientist, uploads his consciousness, becomes super powerful but then becomes a danger to those close to him who try to stop him, take him offline.

    • Ben Wigler

      Lawnmower Man is what I thought as well. I’m reserving some interest for this, but the trailer was terrible history channel shlock in its feel. I’d be totally happy to be proven wrong though, Pfister is an indisputable wizard of beautiful photography. I just haven’t seen much in the way of real brains from the Nolan camp, just a lot of pseudo-intellectual nonsense & robotic approach to human emotion.

  • BP

    Doesn’t do much for me. Makes the movie seem less than it will hopefully be. And by that i mean that here it looks like another episode of Through the Wormhole

  • LIKE IT IS!!!

    Why does it say “Christopher Nolan’s TRANSCENDENCE” in the
    title? Shouldn’t it say “Wally Pfister’s TRANSCENDENCE”. Is this how his career is going to play out? In Nolan’s shadow forever? The rumor is that he was the brains behind the thrown so…

    • 80sRobot

      The confusion is understandable — these teasers are similar in style to the teaser for INTERSTELLAR. I bet the public is confused too.

    You’re a disgusting human being

  • Gojiro

    What happens when you upload an AI with nothing but images and information that are only important to Western Male Culture? Seems their data base is missing a significant part of human history.

    Where’s Mencius, Confucius, Zoroaster, Tammuz, Sitting Bull, Buddha, Krishna, Catherine the Great, Marie Curie, Grace Hopper, Vlad the Impailer, Shaka Zulu, Mandela, Elizabeth I, Ted Bundy, Stalin, Hitler, Khan . . .

  • ʝoe ßloggs

    It sounds like a generic documentary on Discovery Science narrated by Morgan Freeman.

    • Ben Wigler

      my thought’s exactly. Seems like it would be cool for a Discovery special, but as a feature film? Yawwwnnnnmower man.

  • mattinacan

    Christopher Nolan’s Transcendence? I know he is a exec producer, but this isn’t his film.

  • Nigger

    It’s Wally Pfister’s Transcendence, fucking idiots.

  • I mean…..

    LOL @ the fact that proofreading seems to be a lost concept to every writer associated with this site

  • Ben Wigler

    Mega, mega, mega, MEGA yawn.

  • Colin Christian

    Count me in!

  • Milo

    “Christopher Nolan’s TRANSCENDENCE”? 18 hours later and you guys haven’t fixed the headline?

    • Um, Sure

      Nolan= more clicks.

  • Bo Jangles

    Why does an NYU student need to come to this website and pump her chest about how knowledgeable she is regarding the cinema? Because she isn’t an NYU student. Most NYU students I know would never come to this site and write about their allegedly superior intelligence and artistic sensibilities. Being accepted to and attending NYU is a bragging right of its own. Singling out Christopher Nolan films doesn’t make you unique – it just makes you a blow-hole hater.

  • AManWithAKilt

    The basic idea and it’s themes have, unfortunately, been played out many times before (and played out well). Not saying this will be a bad movie, just that it’s hard to get excited about a movie with the same idea as a dozen others.

  • Half Interested

    You both need to f**k and get it over with. The sexual tension is thick enough to cut with a knife. You deserve each other.

    it is surely a sub-par scifi flick.borderline stupid. making self aware AI is as simple as putting a usb2.0 and lan cable into a brain (refer to trailer)…really? Please don’t add nolan’s name with the movie. Pfister is a cinematographer, he should have stuck to what he knows he is good at. This is stupid sci fi at its best. Disappointing. Please correct the title atleast.
