Christoph Waltz searches for the mathematical meaning of life in the trailer for Terry Gilliam's *The Zero Theorem*. It's filled with Gilliam's trademark gorgeous, absurd visuals with a healthy dose of corporate dystopia. **Update:** Video removed from YouTube.

This isn't the official trailer for *The Zero Theorem *(as you can see from the watermark), but is likely meant to entice distributors. Still, it's nice to see a return to Gilliam's brain and his gigantic visual ideas combined with Waltz's performance as the computer genius given an impossible task. Here is the synopsis from Wikipedia:

Qohen Leth is an eccentric and reclusive computer genius who lives in an Orwellian corporate world and suffers from existential angst. Under the instruction of a shadowy figure known only as "Management", Qohen works to solve the "Zero Theorem" – a mathematical formula which will finally determine whether life has any meaning. Qohen's work in the burnt-out chapel that serves as his home is interrupted by visits from Bainsley, a seductive woman, and Bob, the teenage son of Management.
