It feels like work on Terry Gilliam’s existential sci-fi flick The Zero Theorem has been underway for ages now, so fans of the director will likely be relieved to learn that the film will finally hit theaters this summer after being acquired by Amplify.
For a while, it was uncertain whether the odd, high-concept flick would find a company brave enough to handle its distribution. Following confirmation of the deal, Gilliam stated:
“The Zero Theorem is a very unique film that I’m especially proud of, so it is a relief to be distributed by a company that is not afraid to push the boundaries.”
Amplify was formed earlier this year when digital distribution company Go Digital, Inc. and Variance Films decided to merge. GoDigital CEO Logan Mulvey and Variance Films President Dylan Marchetti have been working with Kent Sanderson, formerly of Focus Features, since January to acquire films for Amplify, »

Terry Gilliam's long-awaited next film, "Zero Theorem," is finally going to hit the big screen.
Amplify and Well Go USA Entertainment announced that they acquired the domestic distribution rights to Gilliam's sci-fi movie and will release it in late summer. "Zero Theorem" debuted at last year's Venice Film Festival, and the director has been looking for a buyer since then.
Gilliam has said that "Zero Theorem" completes a dystopian satire trilogy that began with 1985's "Brazil" and 1995's "12 Monkeys."
The movie stars Oscar winner Christoph Waltz as a reclusive, brilliant computer programmer tasked with coming up with a formula to determine whether life holds any meaning. Waltz is joined by an all-star cast including Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, Melanie Thierry, and David Thewlis.

Computer genius Qohen struggles to name things that bring him joy, while Swinton's character pushes him to elaborate on his feelings.
The movie centres around Qohen as he is hired to discover the meaning of existence (or lack thereof), but his work becomes more confused when he falls in love.
The movie is Gilliam's first since 2009 fantasy The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.
The Zero Theorem will open on March 14 in the UK. Watch a trailer for it below: »
Written by Pat Rushin
Directed by Terry Gilliam
Though writer Pat Rushin scripted and conceived the story of The Zero Theorem, one can be forgiven for assuming Terry Gilliam came up with the narrative himself, being that it comes across as the work of someone who either saw every film Gilliam’s ever made or just happened to direct them. Indeed, The Zero Theorem sees Gilliam very much in his storytelling and thematic comfort zones, though sadly to diminishing returns. It openly scrounges scraps from earlier efforts, especially Brazil, but has little idea how to develop its ever so slightly different ideas beyond thin sketches.
Qohen Leth (Christoph Waltz) is the jittery, button-pushing outsider of The Zero Theorem’s particular near-future dystopia. Eager to become a work-at-home employee, his attempts at a disability claim see him assigned to work on the titular theorem by the mysterious, »

No stateside release date has been announced for Terry Gilliam's latest The Zero Theorem, but we do have three featurettes as Sony prepares for the international debut of this unique sci-fi drama. The story centers on a computer hacker (Christoph Waltz) who tries to find the meaning of human existence. His work is constantly sidetracked by Management, whose central hub known as the Mancom is showcased in the first featurette. Terry Gilliam explains that the look of this massive building was inspired by a Russian blast furnace he found on Google Earth, although the location was deemed too dangerous to shoot inside. We also hear from stars Christoph Waltz and David Thewlis, who describe their experiences in working with the filmmaker, and explore the unique and vibrant costumes used in this futuristic film. The Zero Theorem is currently set for release in the U.K. on March 14. We'll keep »
The Fifth Estate, 2013.
Directed by Bill Condon.
A dramatic thriller based on real events that reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century's most fiercely debated organization.
The Fifth Estate is a dramatic thriller based on true events that charts the rise of one of the most influential organisations of the 21st century, Wikileaks, and their quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of those in power.
Without knowing too much of the story before I sat down to watch this, I really had no idea what I was in for. I’d only heard of Julian Assange and Wikileaks on the news but never actually sat down to find out more. I thought that this might have been a problem »

A few featurettes for two upcoming films have landed online. Firstly, three new behind-the-scenes videos for director Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem offer a look at the costumes, the main set, and Gilliam’s directorial process.

Additionally, a new 4-minute featurette for director Denis Villeneuve’s (Prisoners) twisty thriller Enemy has been released online. The story revolves around a university lecturer (Jake Gyllenhaal) who discovers that he has a double, whom he tracks down and engages, resulting in “a complex and dangerous struggle.” This new behind-the-scenes video offers a »

"You're trying to prove that the universe is all for nothing." We've already seen one trailer for Terry Gilliam's latest sci-fi endeavor The Zero Theorem starring Oscar-winning actor Christoph Waltz. The film still doesn't have a release date in the United States, but has played countless festivals leading up to its spring release in the United Kingdom next month. And since the film is so close to release across the pond, a new TV spot from the UK has popped up giving just a brief glimpse at the story, the cast (which includes David Thewlis) and the wild setting. It's definitely pure Terry Gilliam, whether you like it or not. Watch it! Here's the first UK TV spot for Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem from the film's YouTube: The Zero Theorem is directed by Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys) and written newcomer.

Whether they're bleak, shocking or sad, the endings to these 22 movies have haunted us for years...
Warning: There are spoilers to the endings for every film we talk about in this article. So if you don't want to know an ending for a film, then don't read that entry.
It's probably best to start by talking about what this article isn't. It's not a list of the best movie endings, the best twists, the most depressing endings or anything like that. Instead, we're focusing here on the endings that seeped into our brain and stayed there for some time after we'd seen the film. The endings that provoke in an interesting way, and haunt you for days afterwards.
As such, whilst not every ending we're going to talk about here is a flat out classic - although lots of them are »
It’s so funny to think while computers are getting smaller and smaller the movie The Zero Theorem toys with the idea of a gigantic futuristic computer in this behind the scenes featurette which not only has some great interviews, but even some new extended footage.
Featurette: The Zero Theorem – Behind the Scenes
The Zero Theorem starring Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Matt Damon and Tilda Swinton doesn’t currently have a Us release date though it’s already made the festival circuit. Fingers cross we get one soon! »

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2008 - another great year for lesser-seen gems...
For some, 2008 will be memorable as the year of The Dark Knight, with its astonishingly unhinged turn from the late Heath Ledger. Alternatively, it could be remembered as the year a legion Indiana Jones fans left cinemas glum-faced, having sat through Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.
Elsewhere, Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan sang and danced on a Greek island in Mamma Mia!, while Will Smith played an alcoholic superhero in Hancock. But as usual, 2008 offered plenty of watchable movies outside the top 10, which is where we swoop in - like Hancock after a bottle of gin.
So as usual, here's our selection of 25 underappreciated films from the year 2008 - starting with a British horror film starring Michael Fassbender...

A brief behind-the-scenes featurette for director Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem has landed online. The pic 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. We got our first good look at footage from the film a couple of weeks ago by way of the first theatrical trailer, and this new featurette offers up even more footage from the decidedly odd feature. In the featurette, Gilliam and some of his crew discuss some production design aspects of the future-set pic, specifically discussing the fact that in this future, computers have grown larger and not smaller. The movie continues to look like a trip, and I’m definitely interested to see what Gilliam has put together. Hit the jump to watch the new featurette. The film also stars Melanie Thierry, »

Director: John Boorman
Writer: John Boorman
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
The octogenarian director is still going strong, though this is his first feature since 2006’s The Tiger’s Tail. We’re thinking this historical piece sounds exactly like Boorman’s cup of tea, whose more recent dabblings in John Le Carre land or the South African set In My Country didn’t quite win raves. Instead, this recalls something like his semiautobiographical 1987 film, Hope and Glory.
Gist: An Englishman who grew up in London during World War II joins the military to fight in the Korean War. br>
Release Date: Boorman’s last stint at Cannes was in 1998 for The General, for which he won Best Director. Chances are slim that we’ll see him there again, look for it »
