Black Holes and Revelations: Gilliam’s Cluttered Dystopia a Mixed Return to Form

In what stands as his best film since 1998’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, director Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem still isn’t quite the dystopic juggernaut one might have hoped for, though it does slightly resemble one of his most noted works, 1985’s Brazil. However, this isn’t quite that state of mind, though it does in fact revolve mightily around the state of its protagonist’s conflicted existence and his unrequited search for meaning in a world that instead contends there absolutely is none. Being treated to a demure theatrical release over a year after its premiere at the 2013 Venice Film Festival, it’s being handled as a boutique title, likely to wallow into the same nether regions as Gilliam’s last several titles, like the valiant exercise The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus »

New 'Fury', 'Sin City 2', 'Zero Theorem' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Posters

23 July 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Several new posters have been released recently and I'll begin with the above banner for David Ayer's Fury (click for full size), which clearly has the makings of three separate posters so I separated them and offer larger looks directly below. Featured front and center is obviously Brad Pitt as Wardaddy, leader of the World War II tank crew and he's joined here by Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Josh Bernthal and Shia Labeouf. Fury is set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. The film hits theaters on November 14, check out the individual posters below. »

Blu-ray Review – The Zero Theorem (2013)

21 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Zero Theorem, 2013.

Directed by Terry Gilliam.

Starring Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Matt Damon, Ben Whishaw and Tilda Swinton.

Synopsis:

A computer hacker whose goal is to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management; namely, they send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him.

Terry Gilliam’s career as director has produced a filmography of varied result, from the highs of a modern classic like Brazil to total misfires in the shape of The Brothers Grimm and Tideland, but one thing has always been guaranteed; he has a unique sense for storytelling and an eye for visuals unlike anyone else. As such, The Zero Theorem is everything we could want from a Terry Gilliam film and much more; it’s one the year’s best films.

The story is a familiar one but has that likable Gilliam lead (think Jonathan Pryce, »

From visionary director Terry Gilliam (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), The Zero Theorem stars two-time Academy Award®winner* Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds) as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst.

New Posters For ‘Maps To The Stars,’ ‘Clouds Of Sils Maria,’ ‘Zero Theorem’ & More

14 July 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You can just feel the wheels in motion for the fall and the fall film festival season. While some of these films do not have U.S. release dates yet, many have openings just around the corner and many are already receiving international releases. And so we’ve collected a few new posters that have landed for a quartet of films that have already premiered elsewhere earlier this year, and will likely drop into theaters or festivals in the next six months. Let’s start with the earliest film, Terry Gilliam’s “The Zero Theorem.” It debuted way back at the 2013 at the Venice Film Festival (our review here). It stars Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, Lucas Hedges Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis and Matt Damon, and it’s about an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst in a dystopian future age, perhaps not unlike Gilliam’s “Brazil” but much more technologically advanced. »

Christoph Waltz goes bonkers in dazzling new trailer for Terry Gilliam's 'Zero Theorem'

9 July 2014 7:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Terry Gilliam's "Orwellian triptych" is going out with a bang. 29 years after "Brazil" and 19 years after "12 Monkeys," the acclaimed director is returning to paranoid form with "The Zero Theorem," a dystopian sci-fi starring two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz as a reclusive computer genius attempting to unlock the meaning of life. Now a new trailer for the film has arrived, and based on the collection of colorful, slightly off-kilter images on display it appears the comparisons to Gilliam's two earlier sci-fi classics are well-founded. Also starring Melanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Tilda Swinton, Matt Damon and Ben Whishaw, "The Zero Theorem" divided critics when it premiered at last year's Venice Film Festival (read Guy Lodge's review here), with Waltz's performance singled out by many as one of the film's highlights. It's slated to hit U.S. screens on September 19. Check out the trailer above, then let us know »

Watch: U.S. Trailer For Terry Gilliam's 'The Zero Theorem' Tries To Solve A Riddle

8 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Yeah, we know. It seems like there have been a zillion trailers for this thing already, and you're right, there have been (not to mention a poster banned by the MPAA). But the U.S. release for Terry Gilliam's "The Zero Theorem" is finally on the horizon, so yes, that means another trailer, but it's a reminder that there are few filmmakers out there who deliver a cinematic experience quite like Gilliam. The basics you already known at this point. Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, Lucas Hedges Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis and Matt Damon star in this one about a reclusive, angsty computer genius tasked with solving a riddle that will render the meaning of life as, well, nothing. And the existential task is made more difficult by a constant parade of visitors—including a teenager and a very sexy woman—while he battles his own objections to what seems like a soul-crushing job. »

It has taken awhile, but Amplify and Well Go have officially set a September 19 release date for Terry Gilliam's latest movie The Zero Theorem with the film premiering On Demand a month earlier on August 18 and now the official domestic trailer has dropped.

Check Out The Alternate Poster For Terry Gilliam's ‘The Zero Theorem’ That Won’t Be Seen In Theaters

30 June 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’ve got our hands on a new “alternate version” of the poster for Terry Gilliam’s “The Zero Theorem” starring Christoph Waltz and featuring Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton and Matt Damon in supporting roles both big and small. You won’t see this version of the one sheet in theaters…well because, maybe it’s that butt centered right in the middle, but you could also call it a “leaked” poster if you like. Gilliam’s “The Zero Theorem” drops August 19th On Demand and September 19th in theaters. A new U.S. version of the trailer should be arriving soon too. Until then here's the one sheet you're not supposed to see, at least not at the multiplex. Update: Well, if the above post wasn't vague enough... the cat's out of the bag, the poster was banned by the MPAA. I guess »

While we continue to wait for a Us release date for Terry Gilliam's particularly kooky-looking film, The Zero Theorem, we have a new international trailer for you to watch! It's always fun watching Gilliam's bizarre movies, he always manages to surprise me. This movie has been a long time coming.

The film stars Christoph Waltz as "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."

The movie is sure to be yet another wild ride from the filmmaker. It also stars Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis, Melanie Thierry, and Lucas Hedges. Enjoy the trailer!

International Trailer For The Zero Theorem Reminds Us That Terry Gilliam’s Latest Is Still On The Way

13 June 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It feels like it’s been an eternity since Terry Gilliam started working on his latest sci-fi venture, philosophical mind-bender The Zero Theorem, so it would be understandable if you, like me, actually forgot that it was still heading to U.S. theaters at some point. This year (though we still don’t know exactly when), the film will finally arrive on the big screen, courtesy of Well Go Entertainment and Amplify, and we’ll find out whether it’s been worth the wait.

The international trailer makes a strong case for the film, highlighting its cast and brain-bending premise. Of course, this is Terry Gilliam we’re talking about, so we always expected that The Zero Theorem would be a bit of an enigma. But with a cast including Christoph Waltz, Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton and David Thewlis, this one is high on our list, regardless of whether we »

Watch: First Trailer for Jeremy Renner’s ‘Kill the Messenger’

29 May 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features has unveiled the first trailer for Jeremy Renner’s journalism drama “Kill the Messenger,” due for release on Oct. 10.

Story is based on investigative journalist Gary Webb’s stories alleging the CIA’s involvement in the spread of crack cocaine in Los Angeles — and the consequences Webb faces for his whistle-blowing.

“National security and crack cocaine in the same sentence — does that not seem strange to you?” Renner asks early in the trailer.

Michael Cuesta is directing from Peter Landesman’s script. Focus acquired worldwide distribution rights at Berlin last year.

Rosemarie DeWitt, Lucas Hedges, Robert Patrick, Barry Pepper, Michael Sheen, Paz Vega, Michael Kenneth Williams and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are also starring. Producers are Scott Stuber, Renner and Naomi Despres.
