Four New Photos from The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in just a few weeks is Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, his long-awaited latest feature film and the last starring role for Heath Ledger. We've only heard bits and pieces about this so far, and until recently, no one had seen it. The sneaky guys over at DVD-Forum.at have unearthed four new photos, our first real photos from the film (not counting this one). And while you're browsing through the photos, check out the early screening report from Entertainment Weekly, where they have some industry buzz coming from the first sales screening held in Los Angeles.
Seen above (top to bottom): Heath Ledger as Tony, Lily Cole as Valentina, and Christopher Plummer as Dr. Parnassus himself. "The two-hour film apparently features amazing visuals, but the storyline is rather complex, centering on Plummer as Dr. Parnassus, a man who runs a traveling sideshow with his daughter, a young barker, and a sidekick, played by Verne Troyer. Tom Waits plays the Devil, with whom Parnassus makes a Faustian bargain, and Ledger's character joins the troupe after they find him hanging from his neck under a London bridge." You can definitely expect to hear a lot more about this once it hits Cannes soon!
