Now Playing Synopsis: A brilliant innovator in the field of Artificial Intelligence becomes the bridge in the gap between man and machine in this sci-fi thriller starring Johnny Depp. His entire career, Dr. Will Caster (Depp) has been working toward one goal -- to create a machine possessing the entire spectrum of human emotions, and the collective intelligence of every person who has ever lived. But while Dr. Caster's unorthodox experiments have made him famous in scientific circles, a radical anti-tech group known as Rift is determined to stop him at all costs. In the midst of an attack on A.I. labs across the United States, one Rift agent manages to shoot Dr. Caster with a radioactive bullet, ensuring his death. Little did Rift realize that their efforts to destroy Dr. Caster would only make him stronger than they ever could have imagined, because before he dies, his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max (Paul Bettany) successfully transfer Dr. Caster's consciousness into a computer, where his hunger for knowledge and power transforms him into an unstoppable force of sentient energy inhabiting every computer and electrical system on the planet. Morgan Freeman co-stars. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

The Machine

Opens Friday, Apr 25, 2014 Synopsis: An emerging Cold War leads to the development of a revolutionary new weapon that blurs the boundaries between man and machine. As rampant poverty plunges the world into chaos, a powerful new enemy of mankind emerges. Our only hope for salvation lies in the genius of Vincent McCarthy (Toby Stephens), the head scientist at Britain's Ministry of Defense. McCarthy has created an android prototype with unrivaled processing power and physical strength. When a programming glitch results in an unforeseen tragedy it begins to look like even McCarthy has failed in his efforts to save humanity, but with the help of artificial-intelligence expert Ava (Caity Lotz) he might just succeed in creating the world's smartest, strongest fighting machine. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Toby Stephens, Caity Lotz, Denis Lawson, Sam Hazeldine, Pooneh Hajimohammadi Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
