This week's teasers for Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp and Kate Mara, have finally led to the full-length trailer for the film. The movie will explore how renowned AI researcher Dr. Will Caster, played by Depp, will be forced to upload his consciousness into a machine after a botched assassination attempt. The transfer is successful, but, like in so much science fiction, the power that comes with being an AI construct starts to consume him, leaving his loved ones to look on powerlessly.

The film, due out on April 18th, 2014, will be the directorial debut of longtime Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister. Joining Johnny Depp are House of Cards star Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, and Paul Bettany.
