You can check out the trailer for The Zero Theorem and read a synopsis below.
Acclaimed director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) returns with the visually stunning sci-fi epic The Zero Theorem, starring Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius. Living in isolation, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life â€“ or the complete lack of oneâ€”once and for all.
Increasingly disturbed by visits from people he doesnâ€™t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (MÃ©lanie Thierry), his unpredictable supervisor Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), itâ€™s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that heâ€™s able to understand his own reason for being.
The Zero Theorem will be released on iTunes on August 19th, and will be released in theaters on September 19th.
