(Audio from April 1st, 2014 morning edition of The Beijing Hour: The Disney animation Frozen has become the top-grossing animated film in box office history.)


Johnny Depp is in Beijing to promote his new film "Transcendence."

This is Depp's first visit to China.

The American science fiction thriller "Transcendence" stars Depp alongside Morgan Freeman and Rebecca Hall.

Depp explained the reasons he joined the film. In addition to being impressed by its employment of advanced technology, including 3D print, he emphasized that he was also drawn to the film's romantic storyline. Depp said,  "And it's also the love story, the idea that these two scientists very dedicated to this work, to this computer and the possibilities of this AI. When it comes right down to it, what would you do? What would everyone do? If the person you loved were seconds away from death, if you had the opportunity to upload their consciousness into a computer, or let them go. I mean it's a split-second decision almost. It's an interesting thing to ponder because I think we all know what we would do. We would do anything for love".

During his stay in Beijing, Depp, also a musician, will be invited to experience Chinese rock and roll music and vanguard painting.

The film "Transcendence" is set to hit Chinese screens on April 18th.
