Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is set to debut in Cannes tomorrow morning and I couldn't be more excited. In preparation for its debut, we received a small batch of new photos from the film that haven't been seen yet. Before I left for Cannes, we featured four new photos, but these are even better than those. In addition to photos of Heath Ledger as Tony, there are shots of Christopher Plummer as Dr. Parnassus, Lily Cole as his daughter Valentina, Verne Troyer as his sidekick Percy, and a specia shot of Tom Waits as Mr. Nick. Check out the brand new photos below and stay tuned for our review tomorrow!
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a modern-day fantasy adventure in which Dr. Parnassus has the extraordinary gift of inspiring the imaginations of others. Helped by his traveling theatre troupe, including his sarcastic and cynical sidekick Percy and versatile young Anton, Parnassus offers audience members the chance to transcend mundane reality by passing through a magical mirror into a fantastic universe of limitless imagination. However, Parnassus' magic comes at a price. For centuries he's been gambling with the devil, who is coming to collect his prize - Parnassus' precious daughter, Valentina on her birthday.
