The more promo comes out for Wally Pfister's directorial debut, the more I think Transcendence is probably doing itself no favors coming out so soon after Spike Jonze's Her. That came out a while back, but it'll be fresh on people's minds thanks to the Oscars.
Transcendence seems like more of a thriller, obviously, and a more cynical take on human-AI interactions, but the comparisons will be inevitable. Jonze's take was such a refreshing and unique thing while I haven't seen quite as much originality in the Transcendence promo materials thus far.
But we'll see. The new poster is below. Transcendence comes out on April 18th in the US and a week later in the UK.
