The Zero Theorem

What kind of wacky world has Terry Gilliam created this time? While an early promo trailer leaked a few weeks ago, Terry Gilliam's new film The Zero Theorem is finally getting revealed at Comic-Con this week. The filmmaker brought the first 10 minutes from the film as well as a promo reel to introduce this new sci-fi vision starring Christoph Waltz. While none of that is officially released yet, in the meantime Empire has posted the first two photos from the film to give you an early look at the wacky world Gilliam has dreamt up. We also get to see a brand new bald Christoph Waltz as computer programmer "Qohen Leth." See below.

Here are the first look photos for The Zero Theorem. The final shot is just a closer crop of the first photo.

Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem, which looks a lot more like Brazil or 12 Monkeys than his recent work, stars Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Peter Stormare, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw and Matt Damon as "Management." Here's the original synopsis: An eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst works on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the purpose of existence—or the lack thereof—once and for all. Gilliam describes Waltz as a programmer for "entity-crunching" corporation ManCom who is "waiting for a phone call that will give meaning to his life." We'll definitely be keeping an eye on this sci-fi film, as wacky and strange as it is, so stay tuned for more.

Ever since Time Bandits, I've been into Gilliam, but I fear this might be another miss since the Brothers Grimm. I hope not, but...
