The Zero Theorem

© Copyright Terry Gilliam.

Terry Gilliam wanted to combine a 'simple' title with a sequence of a swirling black hole to draw the audience into the first scene of the movie. As the camera pulls back we see the image is displayed on a futuristic computer screen behind a naked Christoph Waltz.

Finding a typeface that would express the balance between the mixture of futuristic society and Gothic architecture proved so compromised that we decided to design our own. To reflect the transformation of the film's central character Qohen (Christoph Waltz), we devised the end titles to contrast the title in both colour and mood.

Following Brazil and Twelve Monkeys, The Zero Theorem is the final part of Terry Gilliam's dystopian satire trilogy. It will be released in British cinemas on 14 March 2014.
