Three new stills and one behind the scenes image to promote Terry Gilliam‘s The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus have appeared on DVD Forum. You’ll be able to marvel over them all below the break.
Parnassus is being described in the same few terms over and over again. It was Heath Ledger‘s final film, and after his death, Terry Gilliam turned to Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell to complete the picture by stepping in and filling in for Ledger, playing his character in a series of fantasy sequences. You’ve probably also heard some scaremongering that the film is going to bypass US cinemas but, truthfully, there’s nothing to that rumor at all. Indeed, a buyers screening this week seemed to spark a whole new wave of interest amongst American distributors even ahead of the film’s Cannes premiere. According to Entertainment Weekly, some of these buyers criticized the film’s storyline as being “rather complex” but that reflects on the buyers more than the film.
