Utterly Bizarre Trailer For Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem’ Hits Net

Zero Theorem Christoph Waltz, Lucas Hedges, Mélanie ThierryTerry Gilliam, the man behind such trippy, outlandish cinematic voyages as The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and 12 Monkeys is at it again. The trailer for his latest, The Zero Theorem, has hit the web…and it’s a doozy. The movie looks strange. I mean, really strange. Looks like Clockwork Orange by way of Cool World, with Verhoeven’s Total Recall thrown in, a bit of Blade Runner, a dash of Inception, and props and costumes that were on loan from the local porn studio.

But at least you can tell that it’s by design. Gilliam, with his eccentric eye, knows exactly what he’s doing with this bizarre mish-mash, even if the trailer struggles to summarize what the film is about. Go ahead, take a peak and see how you feel about it.

The Zero Theorem has an impressive cast that boasts Academy Award winners Christoph Waltz, Matt Damon, and Tilda Swinton, as well as David Thewlis, and Mélanie Thierry. The film’s plot, according to IMDb, goes a little something like this:

A computer hacker’s goal to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management; this time, they send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him.

The Zero Theorem was released in Italy last month, with no official word on when it’ll arrive stateside as of now.

So what do you think? Your cup of tea?
