When I was a young man and the Internet was new, I made the same joke every time I dialed-up and heard those dissonant, scratchy tones. “Chhhhhhh-CHHHHHH-Chhhhhh” my modem would bray, and as soon as there was silence I'd turn to whomever was in the room and conspiratorially say, "all right, we're in."
'Transcendence,' the first feature film directed by Christopher Nolan's longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister, is two straight hours of that “all right, we're in,” with (slightly) updated peripherals. Featuring more technobabble than a middling episode of 'Star Trek: Voyager,' Rebecca Hall and Johnny Depp star as husband and wife computer geniuses who, along with artificial intelligence labs across the country, are attacked by a band of “neo-Luddite” terrorists.
The Mad Hatter is going to be dealing with some daddy issues in 'Alice in Wonderland 2,' which is apparently serving up twice the Hatter craziness. Disney's upcoming sequel is casting theater actor Mark Rylance in the role of the Mad Hatter's father, a role created specifically for the new film.
We're just a couple of weeks away from the unveiling of 'Transcendence,' Wally Pfister's directorial debut, and if you're not excited enough about it, Warner Bros. has just released six -- count 'em, six! -- clips from the new sci-fi film. We have officially reached peak promotion.
Back in 1990, before Johnny Depp was the major A-list actor he is today, he starred in the John Waters cult musical comedy 'Cry-Baby,' about a conservative girl in 1950s Baltimore who falls for a rebellious bad boy against her mother's wishes. A parody of classic musicals like 'Grease,' the movie wasn't a major success at the time, but went on to become a beloved cult classic and inspire a Broadway musical. Twenty-four years later, we revisit the cast of the film that helped make Depp famous and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1993, the rom-com 'Benny and Joon' followed the mentally ill Juniper, aka "Joon," who lives with her brother Ben after their parents have passed away. When Sam (Johnny Depp), a quirky cinephile and cousin of one of Ben's friends comes to visit, sparks fly between him and Joon and it's not long before the two are falling for each other. Praised for its touching portrayal of love and mental illness, the film was a sleeper hit, and 21 years later, we're taking a look back at the cast to see what they're up to now.
Though covering much of the same ground as the first one, the latest 'Transcendence' trailer plays up the role of the terrorists (headed by Kate Mara) who are looking to stop people like Johnny Depp from achieving the singularity. It seems as thought it's meant to show that this science-fiction film is going to have action alongside its heady ideas.
Warner Bros. is ramping up promotion for its Johnny Depp-led sci-fi film with the release of the first 'Transcendence' poster, and by the looks of it, one would think the 'Lone Ranger' star was headlining a reboot of 'Elysium' or an 'Elysium'-'Matrix' crossover movie.
It's the worst kept secret in the superhero universe that Marvel is planning 'Doctor Strange' as one of their upcoming movies. He's a big part of the upcoming storyline in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (assuming, as we all are, they're following the Infinity Gauntlet plot) and we're simply waiting for the official announcement at this point. We don't have confirmation yet on the movie, but we do now have some early reports on who Marvel is talking with to star in the film: Johnny Depp.
Released in 1998 and based on Hunter S. Thompson's classic novel of the same name, 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' starred Johnny Depp as Raoul Duke, a journalist traveling to Las Vegas on a drug-fueled trip with his friend Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) to cover a motorcycle race. Inspired by Thompson's real-life exploits and directed by Terry Gilliam, the film, which attracted divisive reactions at the time of its release, has become a cult classic and earned a coveted place in the Criterion collection. 16 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
The first trailer for 'Transcendence' has landed -- which stars Johnny Depp and is directed by Wally Pfister -- and it's familiar but fascinating. The film is a thriller about the possible dangers of the singularity, or at least the singularity fronted by Johnny Depp.
