Immersion anticipates Transcendence

1 of 11

International mega star Johnny Depp hopes to bounce back from last year’s box office calamity, The Lone Ranger, with his new film in cinemas this week, Transcendence. In his legendary career, Depp starred in three films grossing over $1 billion (Pirates of the Caribbean entries Dead Man’s Chest and On Stranger Tides, Alice in Wonderland) and has received three nominations for an Academy Award (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Finding Neverland, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street).  For an actor who showed up in Hollywood as a teenager with absolutely nothing but a dream to play guitar in a rock band, John Christopher Depp II’s story of success is nothing short of hard work and warm fan reception. (Who didn’t love that 21 Jump Street cameo two years ago?) Not too shabby for a performer that started with television and bit parts in movies. (His Nightmare on Elm Street role was earned through the help of then-friend Nicolas Cage.)  Hopefully a PG-13 thriller from a long-time Christopher Nolan collaborator in Wally Pfister is the jumpstart Depp’s career needs. Transcendence opens nationwide this weekend. Often considered quirky because of the off-the-beaten-path characters he plays, Transcendence looks to be a step in the villain mastermind direction for Depp. Honorable mention: Sleepy Hollow (1999), Dead Man (1995), Don Juan De Marco (1994), Secret Window (2004)
