12 Monkeys
Bruce Willis Stars in Quixotic Sci-Fi Project from Terry Gilliam
Wed March 4
2009, 7:00 & 9:30

The French experimental sci-fi short La Jetee was the departure point for director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, The Fisher King) in his drama describing a civilization that has been driven underground, having been largely wiped out by a killer virus unleashed in various points around the world in 1996. Periodically scientists such as James Cole (Bruce Willis) are sent up to the surface and back in time to assay for traces of the virus. Cole misses the mark a couple of times when he is sent back in time to investigate and stop the Army of the 12 Monkeys, who were responsible for creating the lethal virus, landing a few years too early (1990) and then quite a few years too early (on a battlefield and then a mental asylum in World War II). As a result, he witnesses key moments in the history of the virus' development and deployment, his dreams a motif portending his complicity in that history.
