Here's our first look at Johnny Depp's new sci-fi film Transcendence, which is directed by Christopher Nolan's cinematographer Wally Pfister. Nolan is producing the film and it also stars Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, Clifton Collins Jr., Kate Mara, and Paul Bettany.

We've got a behind the scenes photo, a video featurette, and a teaser poster for you to check out. It's all in Chinese, but it's still cool. You get a look at several of the actors on set doing their thing and Hall saying hello. The movie is supposed to be in the same vein as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Inception, and here's a description...

Three scientists -- Max and the husband and wife team, Will and Evelyn -- have been developing a programming code for the world’s first fully self-aware computer. Depp will play one of the lead scientists, Will. A group of anti-technology terrorists assassinate Will, Evelyn uploads his brain into a prototype supercomputer. Although she at first finds the experiment seems to have gone wrong, before too long Evelyn finds Will responding in computer form. She goes on to connect Will to the Internet so he can help make further scientific breakthroughs. Will asks Evelyn to connect a microphone and a camera up to the computer so he can see and speak to her as well. Will creates a backup of himself to every computer in the world, and furthers his work through accessing online indexes. When the anti-technology organization finds out, they try to steal the supercomputer and destroy it, but Will no longer needs the computer to survive.

The movie is set to be released on April 18th, and I'm sure it going to turn out great! I love the crazy, mindbending plot!
