“In those days, it was the hotel’s job to take care of all of your needs — before you even knew you needed them,” says Bob Balaban, one of the many familiar faces gracing Anderson’s latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel.

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.

'Snowpiercer' international trailer: A bunch of dirty rebels fight Tilda Swinton and tyranny -- VIDEO
In Snowpiercer, in the future, the Earth will freeze over and everyone — from the filthiest to the fanciest — will live on a very large train that never stops moving. It completes its trip around the planet once each year, like the sun. And like the sun, it keeps its inhabitants alive. Not all of this is obvious in the first international trailer for the film, which is based on a French graphic novel and written/directed by Bong Joon-ho, the South Korean filmmaker behind The Host and Mother.
What is obvious: the healthy smearing of grime across each face in the large cast (Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, and so many more). But not Tilda Swinton, who plays a shout-y classist. In the two minutes of footage, she’s the strangest sight of all.
Watch the Snowpiercer trailer below:
We have some of our first images of Snowpiercer, and humanity is looking rough.
The film, adapted from a French graphic novel, is South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s English-language feature debut. It takes place at the near-end of humanity, in 2031, when an Ice Age has virtually frozen us off the planet and survivors are kept alive aboard an endless train ride. In the new character posters and stills, we see the film’s sprawling cast — which includes Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ed Harris, Kang-ho Song, and a desaturated and bespectacled Tilda Swinton — as well as a few glimpses of the world they live in, which features a lot of grime and frowns.
Coming to America: South Korea's top directors on hitting Hollywood with English language films -- EXCLUSIVE
There’s a scene in South Korean director Park Chan-wook’s 2003 revenge classic Oldboy, currently being remade by Spike Lee, in which the film’s wild-haired, wild-eyed lead Min-sik Choi plops down at a restaurant and slurps on a huge fidgety live octopus, its long tentacles squirming out of his mouth. To American audiences, the moment may seem totally strange. But Park says the scene is less disgusting to Korean audiences. “They would be able to sympathize with the protagonist at that stage, who was incarcerated for 14 years,” he told EW. “He wants to eat something that is alive and moving. By chewing on this living thing, he’s venting his anger to an unknown protagonist.”
