Wally Pfister has to face high expectation for his directorial debut. Which might be a bit unfair. It’s only his first movie as a director, after all.
But people do love Christopher Nolan and being his trusted director of photography comes with this heavy burden.
Will Transcendence actually live up to those expectations?
After two trailers I remain doubtful. The movie has a distinct The Lawnmower Man, 1990s vibe to it... which isn't a good thing.
Thankfully the second trailer for Transcendence at least ends with a sweet bit of Morgan Freeman narration.
Transcendence will be released April 18, 2014.
