Terry Gilliam‘s The Zero Theorem will soon make its premiere at the Venice Film Festival.  For those who are unfamiliar with the film, it stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management (Matt Damon in a minor role), a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation.  Two new images have been released showcasing not only the outsized, colorful world reminiscent of Gilliam’s Brazil, but also featuring co-stars Melanie Thierry and David Thewlis.

Despite the eye-popping visuals, Gilliam tells Deadline that the movie cost was his cheapest movie in 30 years.  Gilliam also echoes Steven Spielberg’s statement about studios heading for a downfall due to the exorbitant cost of making and marketing their pictures.  “You keep waiting to see what’s going to be the new Cleopatra, the one that suddenly takes out a studio,” says Gilliam. “That’s the part I don’t quite understand about this, these economics and how they are able to survive with losing this amount of money as often as they are doing it.”  Hit the jump to check out the images.
