I think like most of the world, Terry Gilliam’s film, The Zero Theorem had fallen off my radar until we got word that the MPAA had banned one of their posters for showing a nude butt. Now a new U.S. trailer has been released and it looks pretty good. It’s striking and unique and reminds me of why I keep getting suckered into seeing Terry Gilliam films. Sadly once I get there I am usually left wishing I hadn’t but what can you do?

The Zero Theorem 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; Melanie Thierry, Tilda Swinton, and David Thewlis also star.  The film hits iTunes on August 19th and limited theaters on September 19th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Zero Theorem:

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.
