There may not yet be a U.S. release date for The Zero Theorem, but eager fans can get a first look at how Terry Gilliam has created the movie’s futuristic world in a brand new trailer just released online. It sure seems like Gilliam has pulled out all the stops – crazy wigs, fun futuristic clothes, lots of colorful cinematography…and yes, that is Christoph Waltz with a bald head and no eyebrows.

In the film, Waltz stars as Qohen Leth, an eccentric computer programmer who is on a futile search for the meaning of life. Working under his boss, a figure only known as “Management,” (Matt Damon) he attempts to solve the “Zero Theorem” which may finally bring the answers to his — and the universe’s  — questions. The film also stars Melanie Thierry, Lucas Hedges, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton, and David Thewlis.

Terry Gilliam details a scene from his upcoming film 'The Zero Theorem' -- EXCLUSIVE

ZERO-THEOREM-01

Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem is a futuristic dive into a near-future crammed with advertising — a world not too far off from our own. The film, starring Christoph Waltz, Matt Damon, and Tilda Swinton, debuts at the Venice Film Festival Sept. 2 and echoes the tone of earlier films by the absurdist director, like 12 Monkeys and Brazil. 

The story follows Waltz’s character, a computer programmer who is assigned to work on a special formula that his boss, known only as “Management” (Damon), believes holds the meaning to our existence. On the street, advertising and technology bombard the senses in every available nook and cranny.

“I think it paints a stark picture of where we are right now,” Gilliam tells EW. “The future has come and met us, we actually don’t live in the present anymore, we live in the future because it’s happening so quickly. It’s really about the world we’re living in and being connected. When, as an individual, can we be alone in a connected world like this? Those are the things that intrigue me.”

Below, Gilliam details the making of a scene at the beginning of the film that introduces us to Waltz’s character, Qohen Leth (pronounced Cohen), and the world around him. The film was shot on location in Bucharest, Romania, and Gilliam discusses how he used elements of the city to dictate the futuristic landscape. He also delves into the unique costumes created by designer Carlo Puggioli for the film, featured in the exclusive photos above.
