A brand-new trailer for Terry Gilliamâs upcoming sci-fi flick The Zero Theorem has been released, and itâs fantastically bizarre.
This newest flick from the twisted (but cool) mind of Gilliam -- you know, the dude who brought us the amazingÂ Monty Python and the Holy Grail, BrazilÂ and 12 Monkeys, among many others -- stars Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Matt Damon, Ben Whishaw, MÃ©lanie Thierry and David Thewlis with a story revolving around an eccentric and reclusive genius named Qohen (Waltz) whoâs plagued with existential angst as he works on a mysterious project meant to discover the purpose of existence (or the lack thereof) once and for all.
This is the filmâs blurb:
Living in isolation, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life â or the complete lack of oneâonce and for all. Increasingly disturbed by visits from people he doesnât fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (MÃ©lanie Thierry), his unpredictable supervisor Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), itâs only when he experiences the power of love and desire that heâs able to understand his own reason for being.
Have a look at the trailer:
Terry Gilliamâs The Zero Theorem will hit theaters on Sept. 19. Will this one be a must-see Terry Gilliam flick for you?
