Fantastic Fest announces closing night film

Posted on

Fantastic Fest 2013

Filmmakers don’t get much more fantastic — in every sense — than Terry Gilliam, the agreeably bonkers auteur whose filmography includes Time Bandits, Brazil, and Twelve Monkeys. So it seems appropriate Fantastic Fest has decided to close this year’s event with his new movie, The Zero Theorem. The Christoph Waltz-starring film, which concerns a reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst, will screen at the Austin, Tx.-based genre festival on September 26.

And there’s more! Other Fantastic Fest films announced today include the long-delayed horror movie All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, the Disney World-shot Escape From Tomorrow, the probably-goes-up-to-11 Metallica Through The Never 3D, filmmaker Jim Mickle’s cannibalistically-inclined family drama We Are What We Are, and the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, which details Alejandro Jodorowsky’s utterly fascinating, ultimately doomed, attempt to make a movie out of Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel.

Fantastic Fest takes place September 19-26 at the Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline. You can see a clip from The Zero Theorem and the trailers for All the Boys Love Mandy Lane and We Are What We Are below.
