"You're trying to prove that the universe is all for nothing." We've already seen one trailer for Terry Gilliam's latest sci-fi endeavor The Zero Theorem starring Oscar-winning actor Christoph Waltz. The film still doesn't have a release date in the United States, but has played countless festivals leading up to its spring release in the United Kingdom next month. And since the film is so close to release across the pond, a new TV spot from the UK has popped up giving just a brief glimpse at the story, the cast (which includes David Thewlis) and the wild setting. It's definitely pure Terry Gilliam, whether you like it or not. Watch it!
Here's the first UK TV spot for Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem from the film's YouTube:
The Zero Theorem is directed by Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys) and written newcomer. An eccentric and reclusive computer genius (Christoph Waltz) plagued with existential angst works on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the purpose of existence—or the lack thereof—once and for all. But his experience with love and desire might be the key to understanding the complexity of life. Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Peter Stormare, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw and Matt Damon also star in the film which played Venice Film Festival and Fantastic Fest, but does not yet have a release date in the United States.
