January 27, 2014

The trailer for Terry Gilliam's (Brazil, 12 Monkeys) latest, The Zero Theorem, is now online and viewable in the player below!

Featuring a screenplay by Pat Rushin, The Zero Theorem stars Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis and Lucas Hedges and revolves around an eccentric and reclusive computer genius (two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz) plagued with existential angst who 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.

I'm in.

...but I'm pretty much a sucker for anything with Gilliam's name attached to it.

Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem Set for Summer Release

Source: ComingSoon

March 5, 2014

Amplify and Well Go USA Entertainment have today announced that they are teaming up to acquire the U.S. rights to acclaimed director Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem. The partners will release the film to theaters across the US in late summer, with a home video release to follow. Amplify will handle theatrical and digital distribution rights, with Well Go USA releasing the film on DVD and Blu-ray.

Directed by Gilliam (Brazil, Twelve Monkeys), The Zero Theorem stars two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglorious Basterds) as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, 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 lack thereof - once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Joby (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.

“For all of us at Amplify and Well Go, it’s an absolute dream to have the chance to work with a visionary like Terry,” said Amplify’s Kent Sanderson. “As someone who wore out a VHS of 'Brazil' and saw 'Twelve Monkeys' in theaters three times, I can say on the whole team’s behalf that we’re incredibly excited to share his new take on society gone awry with the widest possible audience.”

“'The Zero Theorem' is a very unique film that I'm especially proud of, so it is a relief to be distributed by a company that is not afraid to push the boundaries,” said Terry Gilliam.

The Zero Theorem was scripted by Pat Rushin, and produced by Academy Award winner Nicolas Chartier and Dean Zanuck.

... and without any surprise whatsoever....

The MPAA already has problems with this film because the poster shows a naked male butt. Partially. Small and in poor lighting.

Gilliam has taken to Facebook to use it as a good marketing push and to help spread the word around the internet.

All in all, it makes the MPAA like foolish and doesn't diminish my anticipation of the films eventual release.
