Watch the First Official Trailer for Terry Gilliam's <i>The Zero Theorem</i>

After screening at the 70th Venice International Film Festival in September, Terry Gilliam’s forthcoming film The Zero Theorem officially has its first trailer and it looks very, well, Gilliam-ish. The film stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a reclusive computer genius mysteriously charged with the task of developing a formula to prove whether life holds meaning or not as he wrestles with his own feelings of love, desire and existential anxiety amid a futuristic world of neon-lit, cartoonish industrialism.

The imaginative director is of course no stranger to dystopian science fiction, and has even referred to The Zero Theorem as being the final part of a satirical trilogy that includes 1985’s Brazil and 1995’s 12 Monkeys. The film has yet to be given an official release date.
