The Fisher King Terry Gilliam Robin Williams
Of the many friendships the late Robin Williams formed over the course of his career, he returned to work with Terry Gilliam frequently. The actor first popped up in "The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen," took a leading role in "The Fisher King," has a cameo in "The Zero Theorem" and a voice part in the upcoming "Absolutely Anything" featuring most of the members of Monty Python (and despite reports to the contrary, Williams did complete his work on the movie before his passing). The director recently reflected on Williams' commitment to his work during production for "The Fisher King."

The Zero Theorem
Yeah, we know. It seems like there have been a zillion trailers for this thing already, and you're right, there have been (not to mention a poster banned by the MPAA). But the U.S. release for Terry Gilliam's "The Zero Theorem" is finally on the horizon, so yes, that means another trailer, but it's a reminder that there are few filmmakers out there who deliver a cinematic experience quite like Gilliam.

Zero Theorem, alternate poster, crop
We’ve got our hands on a new “alternate version” of the poster for Terry Gilliam’s “The Zero Theorem” starring Christoph Waltz and featuring Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton and Matt Damon in supporting roles both big and small. You won’t see this version of the one sheet in theaters…well because, maybe it’s that butt centered right in the middle, but you could also call it a “leaked” poster if you like. Read More »

Terry Gilliam
As with most projects for Terry Gilliam these days, "The Zero Theorem" developed through a couple of different versions, before it shaped up into the one coming to theaters this summer. At one point, Billy Bob Thornton was slated to lead the film as Qohen, with Jessica Biel and Al Pacino in supporting roles. That didn't happen. But Thornton's exit from the project might not be for the reasons—negotiations, scheduling, finances—you might expect.

Zack Snyder, Watchmen, Gilliam
Forbes has a new interview with director Zack Snyder. You know, the guy that’s directing possibly the most geek-anticipated film of all time, “Batman Vs. Superman.” Don’t get too excited, Snyder reveals almost zero details. He doesn’t talk Ben Affleck, Lex Luthor, the Justice League or anything. Perhaps more interestingly he discusses his beef with Terry Gilliam over “Watchmen.”

Zero Theorem
Terry Gilliam's “The Zero Theorem,” which is the very first thing on our Best Films on 2014 We've Already Seen list, and which our own Oliver Lyttleton gave a pretty decent review in Venice, finally found a US distributor a couple of weeks ago and will hit American screens this summer. In the meantime it's appearing in various parts of the world already, and was released in the UK last week.

The Zero Theorem
"Watchmen" may have come out five years ago, but it feels like yesterday given the back-and-forth that's happening through the various participants in the project. Joel Silver, producer of the version that was once slated be directed by Terry Gilliam, started the ball rolling by calling out Zack Snyder's film as being a "slave" to Alan Moore's comic. Snyder didn't take long to respond, declaring that his movie was made to "save it from the Terry Gilliams of the world," and now Gilliam himself has entered the fray.

Zack Snyder Watchmen
It looks like we now have a new, cinematic beef to follow. Sort of. Last week, producer Joel Silver declared that Zack Snyder's take on "Watchmen" was a "slave" to Alan Moore's comic, and that his proposed version that had been brewing at 20th Century Fox with Terry Gilliam, would've been better (though it would've essentially ditched Doctor Manhattan). Well, it hasn't taken long for Snyder to respond.
