A scientist fights an anti-technology organisation trying to prevent him creating sentient machines in Transcendence, released on Friday at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

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.

As Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves it becomes terrifyingly clear there may be no way to stop him.

Transcendence is rated 12A and runs 199 minutes.
