Johnny Depp stars in head-trippy futuristic sci-fi thriller
Blu-ray $35.99 / DVD $28.99 (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment)
What are the limits of artificial intelligence? In this sci-fi, not-too-futuristic thriller, Johnny Depp plays a researcher working on a machine that combines the knowledge with human emotion—a computer with consciousness, or “transcendence.” But forces are afoot to stop him, even as the secrets of the universe await—and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Co-stars include Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy and Paul Bettany, and the Blu-ray comes with several making-of featurettes.
