Dr. Parnassus trailer

08.07.2009

It seems like we've been getting some wonderful trailers around here this week. Starting with the ZOMBIELAND redband to today's WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. Now if only I could get a SCOTT PILGRIM trailer and we'd be in heaven. But I think I have something better and that's the trailer for THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS.

While I was watching this trailer I literally felt like a kid again. I felt the same way watching this as I did when I saw LABYRINTH for the first time. I am in constant awe of Terry Gilliam. He makes this film look truly enchanting and haunting all at the same time. This also looks like another superb performance for Heath Ledger as well.

I'm interested to see the development of the versions of the character Tony that is played by Ledger as well as fellow actors Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law. I gotta tell you though, everytime I see Farrell on screen I get excited. Let's get something straight first, I'm not like a lot of chicks who just think he's this beefcake. I think the guys got some real talent. ALEXANDER doesn't count. IN BRUGES does however.

I hope you guys see what I see, as well as the world of amazing fantasy that is shown in the trailer.

Plummer, mr Sound of Music himself, is always high class...but maybe even better is actually having Tom Waits playing what he plays.

Looks great. I'm excited about this because it stars Christopher Plummer. He's a wonderful actor.

I loved the trailer, but...

I still think they are putting too much attention on just Heath Ledger. The film has other 3 major stars, probably bigger than him (looking at Depp), but still they are barely seen here. Seems like a bad move to promote a film...

I'm not a fan of Gilliam at all. I find most of his films rambling, annoying and completely incoherent messes. But the guy is one hell of a visualist. I'll see this for Ledger and the rest of the cast mostly. The visuals are amazing though...lets hope the movie actually makes any sense.

It hurts to think of Ledger's potential. Still bothers me. What a shame.

Not only does Ledger look amazing in this, but the visuals look simply stunning and the addition of Depp, Farrell, and Law just make getting the ticket oh the more exciting.

Gilliam is fuckin' back

His last two efforts were extremely disappointing, this looks exciting and filled with weird performances. Im looking forward to it.

Terry Gilliam movies always make me giddy. It must be because they are so much better than 99.9999999% of all the other shit that comes out in theaters.

Wow indeed

Love the last line.
Always rooting for Terry. When he gets to do what he wants, he does it so well.
