Trailer For Terry Gilliam's Zero Theorem Ends His Orwellian Triptych

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

The third movie in Terry Gilliam's "Orwellian triptych" is Zero Theorem, and this new trailer is loaded with references to its dystopian predecessors Brazil and 12 Monkeys. And yet the film stands alone as a Gilliam original quite well, as this trailer proves. Check it out.

The film is centered around Christoph Waltz, a computer genius who is given the chance to prove the Zero Theorem — that everything equals nothing, or 0=100%. Which is a heady job, when you think about it.

However ,we're most excited about the return to the Gilliam style. The terrifying doctors, videogame-like world, and cluttered future — it's gorgeous. We grabbed a few screenshots for you to behold:

I have to say, I'm glad Gilliam had to wait a few years to get this one off the ground, Christoph Waltz seems so much more appropriate for this than Gilliam's original choice: Billy Bob Thornton.

Let's hope he can finally tackle Don Quixote next.
