While no one knows when director Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” is going to be released in the United States (most say Christmas Day), what is known is the film will be playing at next month’s Toronto Film Festival. And whenever a film plays at a festival, the studio/distributor/filmmaker releases new movie images. So after the jump, take a look at a few new images from Heath Ledger’s last film.
“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” stars Christopher Plummer, Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell. Here’s the synopsis:
This fantastical morality tale tells the story of Dr. Parnassus and his travelling show, the extraordinary ‘Imaginarium’. Blessed with the remarkable gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Dr. Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. An inveterate gambler, thousands of years ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr. Nick, and won immortality. Centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr. Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on the condition that when his daughter reached her sixteenth birthday, she would become the property of Mr. Nick.
