A brand-new trailer for Terry Gilliam’s upcoming sci-fi flick The Zero Theorem has been released, and it’s fantastically bizarre.

This newest flick from the twisted (but cool) mind of Gilliam -- you know, the dude who brought us the amazing Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Brazil and 12 Monkeys, among many others -- stars Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Matt Damon, Ben Whishaw, Mélanie Thierry and David Thewlis with a story revolving around an eccentric and reclusive genius named Qohen (Waltz) who’s 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 film’s 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 – or the complete lack of one—once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), his unpredictable supervisor Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.

Have a look at the trailer:

Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem will hit theaters on Sept. 19. Will this one be a must-see Terry Gilliam flick for you?
