Own TRANSCENDENCE on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and Digital HD on July 22nd

Warner Brothers has announced the details for their home video release of Cinematographer-turned-Director Wally Pfister's debut film, TRANSCENDENCE. The film comes to Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Download on July 22, 2014. 

I missed the film in theaters, but as a fan of Pfister's DP work for Christopher Nolan, I am very curious to check it out. Plus, I have to admit that I'm a sucker for Sci-Fi films about Artificial Intelligence.

The official announcement and disc details are included below; along with a link to pre-order the film.

From the Official Press Release:

In “Transcendence,” Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of artificial intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him.  
However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should.  
Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.
