Has technology gone too far?

That’s the questioned posed in the new film Transcendence and that’s the question HipHollywood asked one of the film’s stars, Morgan Freeman. “Technology gives us power. We have this power but we could blow ourselves up,” Freeman, who plays computer expert Joseph Tagger, told HH.

The sci-fi flick, also stars Johnny Depp as Dr. Will Caster, an Artificial Intelligence researcher who works to create sentient machines that combine all-knowing intellect with the full range of human emotion. Things take a dramatic turn when Deep’s character is actually the one who transcends.

Kate Mara and Paul Bettany, who star alongside Depp and Freeman, also gave their take on the state of technology and if they think we’re headed for doom.

Take a look at our interviews with the cast of Transcendence and catch the film when it hits theaters Friday, April 18th!

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
