Voltage Pictures has released the first trailer for Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem.

The film follows a computer hacker as he tries to discover the reason for human existence. He continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management; and this time, they send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him.

Christoph Waltz stars as Qohen Leth (amazing name), alongside Melanie Thierry, Lucas Hedges, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis, and Matt Damon.

The Zero Theorem opens in Ireland on March 14th, but first it features at JDIFF where director Terry Gilliam will be in attendance.

An eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst 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.
