Two NEW pictures from Terry Gilliam’s THE ZERO THEOREM #SDCC


Directed by Oscar nominee Terry Gilliam (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), THE ZERO THEOREM revolves around an eccentric and reclusive computer genius  (two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz) plagued with existential angst who works on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the purpose of existence ­or the lack thereof­ once and for all. However, it is only once he experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to understand his very reason for being.
