Terry Gilliam’s THE ZERO THEOREM Latest Trailer

Christoph Waltz-starring Zero Theorem, the latest work from Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Twelve Monkeys) finally has a U.S. release date starting September 19th and now the official U.S. trailer has dropped.

The sci-fi venture which premiered last fall at the Venice International Film Festival has a Stateside release date of August 19th for digital and VOD, followed by a limited theatrical release exactly a month later.

The film received mixed reviews at the time and there are things in all of the trailers that makes me feel some concern for the movie, but fans of Gilliam’s work may take to it a little better when it hits theaters

The Zero Theorem stars Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis and Lucas Hedges. Newcomer Pat Rushin penned the script.

Give the trailer a watch along with a poster that was denied by the MPAA due to some nudity.

Acclaimed director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) returns with the visually stunning sci-fi epic The Zero Theorem, starring Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius. 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.
