Depp plays the foremost researcher in the field of artificial intelligence working to create a sentient machine that combines collective intelligence of everything ever known with full range of human emotions. His experiments make him famous and prime target to anti-technology extremists who will do everything to stop him. Directed by Wally Pfister, co-starring Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman and Kate Mara. About how he feels about technology:
Things go wrong for me, all the time, with technology. I’m not familiar enough with it, and I’m too old school a brain to be able to figure it out. I’m dumb. Anything that I have to attack with my thumbs, for any period of time, makes me feel stupid. So, I try to avoid it, as much as possible, to protect my thumbs.
