From the guy who gave us “Brazil,” “Twelve Monkeys,” and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” I guess it shouldn’t come as any surprise that the first trailer for Terry Gilliam’s “Zero Theorem” looks completely out of this world. And wacky. Let’s not forget the wacky part. Because if Gilliam does one thing well, it’s throwing the wackiness on the big screen.
Check out the first trailer for “Zero Theorem.” That last scene in the trailer reminds me of “Gravity” with Sandra Bullock … but with less clothing.
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. However, it is only once he experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to understand his very reason for being.
Starring Christoph Waltz, David Thewlis, Melanie thierry, Lucas Hedges, Ben Whishaw, Peter Stormare, and Tilda Swinton.
The wackiness arrives sometime in 2014.
