You’re watching this trailer on a computer, so you must not be afraid of them — but you may not feel so brave after watching the trailer for Transcendence, the Johnny Depp-led thriller, which casts tech in a new and ominous light. Depp plays an artificial-intelligence scientist who, suffering from a terminal illness, uploads his consciousness to the web — and that action that puts humanity in jeopardy. (Hate it when that happens.)

Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall and Paul Bettany also star.

Transcendence is due in theaters Apr. 18, 2014.
