Wally Pfister’s Transcendence is kind of a big deal. For one, it stars a stunning cast that boasts Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany and Kate Mara. That aside though, Pfister has been Christopher Nolan’s longtime cinematographer and has turned films like The Dark Knight and Inception into visually stunning pieces of work. So, it’s quite understandable why moviegoers are eager to see him make his feature-film debut.
For those who haven’t been keeping up, Transcendence follows Dr. Will Caster (Depp), a scientist who uploads his brain to a computer before he dies. While it seems like good idea at first, Will’s “thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power,” and it becomes increasingly apparent that there is no way to stop him.
Last week in Los Angeles, Warner Bros. rolled out the red carpet for Pfister and his cast as they attended the world premiere of the hugely-anticipated film. We were lucky enough to be on hand for the event and while there we spoke with the first time director as well as supporting cast members Josh Stewart and Clifton Collins Jr. Unfortunately, as is usually the case with these things, the lead talent did very few interviews and we weren’t able to get any time with them.
That being said, everyone we spoke to had a lot to say and if you’re interested in seeing Transcendence, then we definitely suggest checking out the video below.
Transcendence arrives in theatres this Friday, so make sure you set aside some time to see it. Trust us, this is one film that you do not want to miss.
