Watch: Terry Gilliam's Wild & Trippy 'The Zero Theorem' First Trailer

January 27, 2014

The Zero Theorem

After premiering at the Venice Film Festival, director Terry Gilliam's new film The Zero Theorem has hit the festival circuit overseas and also popped up at Fantastic Fest in Austin. The film hits the United Kingdom this spring, and the first trailer has arrived, showcasing what looks to be another wild ride from Gilliam. The film follows Christoph Waltz as a computer genius working on a project with hopes of discovering the purpose of existence. However, it is only once he experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to understand his very reason for being. Though odd, this at least looks original. Watch now!

Here's the first trailer for Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem from the film's website:

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.

    So Gilliam thought about what Gollum would dream, and here we go. "We is scared."
