A new trailer for Terry Gilliam's upcoming The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
has just been released. Here it is
The trailer uses the star power of Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Colin Farrell and of course Heath Ledger to its advantage. The four actors all play transformations of the same character, kind of like Doctor Who but better looking. This idea was used as a way of dealing with Ledger's tragic, untimely death in January 2008 halfway through the films production. Have to say after seeing this trailer, which reveals a lot more than previous ones , it's probably top of my most anticipated films list. Being Ledger's last film and Gilliam's latest and with all the other big names attached, it's pretty much guaranteed to be a box office success- something that Gilliam, being the visionary renegade he is, is not particularly used to.
