Kate Mara calls for revolution against technology in new 'Transcendence' teaser

Transcendence Kate Mara

Kate Mara, best known for her role in Netflix's House of Cards series, just showed up in a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Transcendence. As with yesterday's trailer, the teaser focuses on the Singularity — what Johnny Depp's character calls Transcendence — or the moment when technological progress outstrips the limits of biology. Here, however, Mara's character Bree warns humanity of the dangers of self-aware technology and how machines will eventually use their power to destroy us. Her movement, RIFT or Revolutionary Independence From Technology, will likely play a pivotal role when the film hits theaters next April.
