First clip from Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem with Christoph Waltz

Do you know how pissed off I was when the trailer for THE ZERO THEOREM was pulled before I got a chance to see it? "Hulk smash!" doesn't even come close to the level of rage I felt when I clicked on the link and instead of an awesome trailer got the dreaded "removed at the request of the producers." The poster and images are great, but I've been wanting to see how the film looks in action so f*cking bad it hurts. All of Terry Gilliam's movies have a special place in my heart, and after finally checking out this first clip from Coming Soon it looks like THE ZERO THEOREM will be just as fantastic as the director's previous films.

The clip has Christoph Waltz basically walking from one area to another and he doesn't have any dialogue, but I'm not complaining because of how much of Waltz's dystopian world is revealed. It's just a minute and a half clip, however there is a lot going on in the background and visually it looks superb. I've already watched it a half dozen times and THE ZERO THEOREM is definitely on my "must see" list for upcoming films.

Part of a statement that was previously released by Terry Gilliam on THE ZERO THEOREM:

What gives meaning to our lives, brings us happiness? Can we ever find solitude in an increasingly connected, constricted world? Is that world under control or simply chaotic? We’ve tried to make a film that is honest, funny, beautiful, smart and surprising; a simple film about a complex modern man waiting for a call to give meaning to his life; about inescapable relationships and the longing for love; peopled with captivating characters, mouthfuls of wise and witty dialogue; raising questions without offering easy answers. Hopefully, it's unlike any film you have seen recently; no zombies, no caped crusaders, no aliens or gigantic explosions. Actually, I might have lied about that last item.

THE ZERO THEOREM also stars Matt Damon, David Thewlis, Ben Whishaw, and Tilda Swinton. The film currently doesn't have a domestic release date, but one should be announced fairly soon.
