The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

A new official trailer has been released for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, the passion project of writer and director Terry Gilliam that has been in the works for over a quarter of a century now.

But the trailer brings with it some bad news for Gilliam fans who have long been waiting for the opportunity to finally see it come to life on the big screen: the film will be available to see in theaters for one night only.

You can find all of the details and watch the new trailer for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote below.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote trailer header

Terry Gilliam has made numerous attempts to adapt Miguel de CervantesDon Quixote into a film for the last 20 years. There were a total of eight attempts, and each ended in some sort of failure due to budgets, weather, or in some cases noise pollution. But now Gilliam can finally bring his passion project to life. And there is the first look at the film.

A new trailer has just dropped giving us an idea of a contemporary adaptation of the novel. In it, we see Adam Driver, playing Toby Grisoni, an ad exec who has taken on the role of Sancho Panza, Don Quixote’s faithful squire; and Jonathan Pryce as Don Quixote, an old man convinced he is the famous literature character.

Gilliamesque review

Gilliamesque: A Pre-posthumous Memoir
Hardcover | Kindle Edition
By Terry Gilliam
Canongate Books | Harper Design
Publication Date: October 1, 2015
Cover Price: $22.00

Terry Gilliam, entertainment renaissance man, pioneer illustrator, and cinema auteur, who was the key force behind the absolutely bizarre and hilarious animation in Monty Python’s Flying Circus, has recently released an autobiography in which he tries to make sense of his wild, sprawling, and utterly successful life career, titled Gilliamesque: A Pre-Posthumous Memoir.

The title is a play on the word Pythonesque, which has pretty much entered the lexicon of language the last few years when describing a piece of humor which pushes envelopes and knows no bounds, like much of the zany oeuvre the madcap Englishmen manifested during their heyday of the late ’60s to the early ’70s. And for someone like Terry Gilliam, who just recently celebrated his 75th birthday a few weeks ago, it’s a term befitting of a man of his social, creative, and influential stature.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the cult classic comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing an updated Blu-ray of the film that has become a source for many a hilarious quote for film and comedy geeks around the world.

The Blu-ray will include an extensive selection of bonus features, most of which have appeared before on previous DVD and Blu-ray editions. Exclusive to the 40th Anniversary Edition will be a filmmakers’ Q&A from the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival and an assemblage of newly discovered unused animated sequences created by Holy Grail‘s co-director, the legendary Terry Gilliam.

Those sequences have made their way online through the official Monty Python YouTube channel. You can check them out here below; it’s enlightening and humorous to hear the man who would one day bless the world of cinema with Brazil, The Fisher King, and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas explain the reasons for their deletion.

Monty Python

In April of last year it was reported that legendary comedy group Monty Python‘s final stage performance, titled The Last Night of Monty Python and described as a “…final, weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous, farewell to the five remaining Python’s as they head to the Old Jokes Home, on the big screen, in HD” would be shown live in theaters around the world.

A documentary titled Monty Python — The Meaning of Life was also filmed during these final shows that offers a glimpse into the preparation that went into the live shows and the history of the comedy group. The documentary will make its international debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival—running from April 15th to April 26th—where Python members John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin will be on hand. While there, the group will also be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their 1975 movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail and their other classics with screenings followed by Q&A sessions.
