Watch: New Behind-the-Scenes Featurette for Terry Gilliam’s THE ZERO THEOREM

     February 10, 2014

A brief behind-the-scenes featurette for director Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem has landed online.  The pic stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation.  We got our first good look at footage from the film a couple of weeks ago by way of the first theatrical trailer, and this new featurette offers up even more footage from the decidedly odd feature.  In the featurette, Gilliam and some of his crew discuss some production design aspects of the future-set pic, specifically discussing the fact that in this future, computers have grown larger and not smaller.  The movie continues to look like a trip, and I’m definitely interested to see what Gilliam has put together.

Hit the jump to watch the new featurette.  The film also stars Melanie ThierryLucas HedgesBen Whishaw, Tilda SwintonDavid Thewlis, and Matt Damon.  The Zero Theorem is currently awaiting a U.S. release date.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Zero Theorem:

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.
