The first teaser for “Transcendence” was skimpy on the details, but luckily, the official trailer for the film has debuted.

According to “Entertainment Weekly,” Johnny Depp plays a professor, who makes a scientific breakthrough, and after being shot by a member of RIFT (Revolutionary Independence From Technology), he finds himself uploaded into the computer.

But while he feels like his mind “has been set free,” he soon starts acquiring a great deal of power that could become extremely dangerous if improperly wielded.

While his friend and colleague, Rebecca Hall, fights back when another researcher wants to shut it down, she soon realizes that things are going too far.

Kate Mara (“House of Cards”), Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany and Cillian Murphy also star in the thriller.

“Transcendence” will make its way into theaters on April 18. What’d you think of the new preview? Let us know in the comments section below!
