A trailer has leaked online for Terry Gilliam’s upcoming film, The Zero Theorem.  The film 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.  Going through the trailer, there’s no doubt it’s a Gilliam movie.  If anyone else’s name were on it, it would be immediately cited as a rip-off rather than a welcome return for the director.  Using a lounge-y rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep”, the trailer makes the film look like a welcome return to Brazil completely with an intimate love story set inside a bombastic, absurd, and imaginative setting.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Melanie Thierry, Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, and David ThewlisThe Zero Theorem may surface during the fall festival season. [Update: We've removed the trailer at the request of the production company.]

    “If anyone else’s name were on it, it would be immediately cited as a rip-off rather than a welcome return for the director.”

    So, is that your smarmy, underhanded way of saying you thought the trailer sucked?

    BTW, that trailer was tits. Gilliam’s still got it. Day one for me.

      how is that smarmy, or in any way a negative assessment of the trailer?

        The best way I can explain it is, I guess, the weird, underhanded way he mentions the director toward the end, as if the trailer presented a film that looked like a distant shadow of his previous efforts (which it wasn’t). IDK, it read as negative to me, and subtly so, as if no one would notice. Maybe I’m wrong. Who knows?

        You’re not wrong. Goldberg has transformed a MOVIE REVIEW and NEWS website into an ego-centric exercise in know-it-allism in which he – as a film school drop-out – has to SCHOOL actual filmmakers every single chance he gets. I get that all contributors here give their opinion on the subject, but his opinions only ever seem to come from a deep sense of entitlement and self-involvement. If he had a little more humility, he might be tolerable, but he has NONE and only ever sees OTHER PEOPLE as the problem. How someone can post their pics to Scotland – without irony – ON A FILM WEBSITE is truly beyond me.
