Visionary filmmaker Terry Gilliam – responsible for such hit-or-miss sci-fi epics as “Brazil,” “12 Monkeys,” and “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”- will release his 2013 film “The Zero Theorem” to UK audiences on March 14, 2014 (US release date still TBA). Gilliam returns to his much frequented near-future setting to revisit the type of colorful, visually explosive sci-fi stuff of the 90’s that just doesn’t get made anymore.
Christoph Waltz, Melanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Matt Damon, and Tilda Swinton star. The official plot synopsis reads:
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.
