More Odd Terry Gilliam Sci-Fi in 'Zero Theorem' International Trailer

June 13, 2014

The Zero Theorem

This past spring, we learned that Amplify and Well Go USA Entertainment have partnered to distribute the new Terry Gilliam sci-fi film, The Zero Theorem, starring Christoph Waltz, and they were hoping to release sometime in July or August. But we've yet to get an official release date for the film in the United States. In the meantime, the film has been opening up all over the world this spring, and we have another international trailer showing more of the peculiar story set in the future, complete with bizarre imagery and characters that we've come to expect from Gilliam as a filmmaker. When can we finally see this? Watch it!

Here's a new international trailer for Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem from The Playlist:

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.

    I love his vision, but if the future ever ended up like Terry Gilliam sees it I'd be as depressed as all of his characters.

    Looks as crappy as The Fountain, and just as pointless
    • Chuckee Knowlton
      Watching and thinking at the same time hurts doesn't it?
      • I love these people who pick just a randomly well-regarded film to compare it to. It must be some kitsch level of trolling I'm just not familiar with yet. Like, where the hell did he get The Fountain from? Because Waltz is bald?

      Nothing like the Fountain. Stop talking bollocks

    Looks interesting. My expectations were let down by Parnassus, but I'll probably give this a go. Hoping for something as good as 12 Monkeys. I tend to like existential movies in general.
  • Super down for this!
  • Was that Robin Williams I caught on that big screen?
  • Terry Craig
    Damn, looks kind of like a follow up to Gilliam's Brazil!
  • urban.spaceman
    Excellent film. Not one of Gilliam's best but still very good.
  • shiboleth
    it looks a bit mediocre but I guess it's gona be fun to watch. As other Terry Gilliam's films. More or less...

    Every Gilliam movie is worth watching because his movies are always different! Maybe not every time very good but always good enough! And sometimes you need something different than cgi stuffed movies with big monsters, toys and multiple explosions... By the way :edge of Tomorrow is a great movie onley the end ends to optimistic...
    Bonkerz! I am in!
