Wally Pfister's Transcendence just received its PG-13 rating as I noted only minutes ago and yesterday we got the first poster for the film (see the bottom of this post) and now we have a second trailer.

Starring Johnny Depp as Dr. Will Caster, the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, the film follows his path as Caster works to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His 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.

Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Kate Mara and Cillian Murphy co-star in the feature which will be released in theaters on April 18.

Watch the new trailer below.

    Really excited to see this...hope the execution is as good as the concept.

    I guess Johnny Depp is mostly going to be doing voice overs in this film.

    For some reason I get a 'The Prestige' feeling out of this when it comes to comparing this to Pfister's previous efforts. I really like The Prestige so that's a plus.

    I know next to nothing about this movie. In fact, I would be completely in the dark if it weren't a trailer I saw when I went to see GRAVITY in IMAX 3-D. Thanks a lot, AMC.

    Looks pretty damn sexy!

    It'll look good because Pfister is a good cinematographer and he'll have watched Nolan very closely but whether the actual film will be glossy B movie stuff or anything more involving remains to be seen.

    (I knew that Transbay Tower was going to screw up the SF skyline as soon as I read about it).

    I'm with BradyD on this one.
    I know Pfister doesn't want to be compared with Nolan, but that's a huge compliment. There's nothing wrong with that except, maybe, the level of excpectation that goes with it.
    I keep flashing on the climatic scene of Arthur C. Clarke's classic novel "Childhoods' End" with the last scene in this trailer.
