A new official trailer has been released for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, the passion project of writer and director Terry Gilliam that has been in the works for over a quarter of a century now.

‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Trailer: Terry Gilliam’s Passion Project Sees The Light Of Day
  |  @   |  

Terry Gilliam has made numerous attempts to adapt Miguel de CervantesDon Quixote into a film for the last 20 years. There were a total of eight attempts, and each ended in some sort of failure due to budgets, weather, or in some cases noise pollution. But now Gilliam can finally bring his passion project to life. And there is the first look at the film.

A new trailer has just dropped giving us an idea of a contemporary adaptation of the novel. In it, we see Adam Driver, playing Toby Grisoni, an ad exec who has taken on the role of Sancho Panza, Don Quixote’s faithful squire; and Jonathan Pryce as Don Quixote, an old man convinced he is the famous literature character.

Book Review: Gilliamesque: A Pre-Posthumous Memoir By Terry Gilliam

Gilliamesque: A Pre-posthumous Memoir
Hardcover | Kindle Edition
By Terry Gilliam
Canongate Books | Harper Design
Publication Date: October 1, 2015
Cover Price: $22.00

Terry Gilliam, entertainment renaissance man, pioneer illustrator, and cinema auteur, who was the key force behind the absolutely bizarre and hilarious animation in Monty Python’s Flying Circus, has recently released an autobiography in which he tries to make sense of his wild, sprawling, and utterly successful life career, titled Gilliamesque: A Pre-Posthumous Memoir.

The title is a play on the word Pythonesque, which has pretty much entered the lexicon of language the last few years when describing a piece of humor which pushes envelopes and knows no bounds, like much of the zany oeuvre the madcap Englishmen manifested during their heyday of the late ’60s to the early ’70s. And for someone like Terry Gilliam, who just recently celebrated his 75th birthday a few weeks ago, it’s a term befitting of a man of his social, creative, and influential stature.

The Blu-ray will include an extensive selection of bonus features, most of which have appeared before on previous DVD and Blu-ray editions. Exclusive to the 40th Anniversary Edition will be a filmmakers’ Q&A from the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival and an assemblage of newly discovered unused animated sequences created by Holy Grail‘s co-director, the legendary Terry Gilliam.

Those sequences have made their way online through the official Monty Python YouTube channel.
