     Here is the new trailer for Terry Gilliam's latest The Zero Theorem. You know with Gilliam you are going to get something unique, visionary and eccentric, but not necessarily something concise or strong in the narrative sense. That is not a harsh criticism, but his films of late have not been good and rather sloppy. I know The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus was filming during the death of star Heath Ledger, but the film did not deliver and Tideland was awful. A great filmmaker throughout the 80s and 90s, plus his fantastic work as a founding member of Monty Python, but he has not had a good film since Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998). Here, Christoph Waltz plays a computer hacker who is attempting to discover the reason for human existence. His work is constantly interrupted by 'The Management' and the story goes from there. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Matt Damon, Ben Whishaw, Mélanie Thierry and David Thewlis. Gilliam can always get a top-notch cast and as aforementioned, the vision should be intriguing. Here is hoping the result is a success. Enjoy the trailer!
