Don't adjust your computer screen - Johnny Depp is taking over the internet.

The "Lone Ranger" star is a Terminator for the digital age in the brand-new trailer for "Transcendence," a new sci-fi thriller in which Depp stars as Dr. Will Caster, a brilliant artificial intelligence researcher who merges with his own creation and becomes bent on erasing humanity from the face of the Earth. Also starring Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Morgan Freeman and Kate Mara and helmed by long-time cinematographer and first-time director Wally Pfister, the film also centers on a group of revolutionary anti-technology extremists whose assassination attempt on Caster inadvertently furthers his agenda.
