“The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus” will be in theaters in October.
This clip contains Heath Ledger as Tony, an MC-type who is in a mall-setting, wooing women to escape into some sort of fantasy:
I actually saw these clips on “yahoo” earlier today. This looks like it will be an incredible movie, and I can’t wait to see Heath in it when the movie finally gets released. It will be hard to watch, knowing that this was Heath’s final (uncompleted) film, but I’m sure he will shine on the big screen just like he always has.
I agree. It will be hard knowing we will not see Heath in any more films but this one really does look fab, really different. That was Heath though, always taking on roles that would really push and challenge him. Does anyone know when ‘Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus’ will show in England? I read a great article in Empire magazine a while back all about the film and how much Heath was enjoying it, but have not seen anything here about release dates. Would love to know.
According to imdb.com, the release date for Imaginarium in the U.K is October 16th. I’m in Canada, and I think it’s expected to release here around the same time.
Thanks Dee, i will really look foward to it. I will keep myself going by watching all my other Heath films until then! Thank you again for letting me know, Emma
Is this movie going to be published in the U.S. at all? Does anyone know?
Hayden, imdb.com gives release dates in a few countries but no mention of the U.S. Surely it will get released there! I have actually found another fantastic site, http://www.imaginariumofdrparnassus.com/forum. It has some great things on it including a free Dr P magazine to download. There are so many people who want this film released. Take a look and see what you think. Keep in touch, Em.
Hayden: I did another check, they have lots of information on this movie in wikipedia, including a release date for the U.S. It’s showing December 25th for the release date there, so I assume for us here in Canada it will be the same. I was hoping for an October release date like the U.K. but oh well, better late than never I guess.
Yes, Dee, as you said, better late then never.
And thanks Emma for the website link. I am definitely going to check that out.
Hayden, Dee. OH MY GOD! The official UK trailer is now out and it is absolutely amazing. It took my breath away to see Heath and that beautiful smile of his. I can hardly wait to see the film and am just counting the days down. I just wish you were both here in the UK to see it in October. The web link is http://www.imaginariumofdrparnassus.com/blog/see-official-lionsgateuk-imaginarium-of-dr-parnassus-trailer/07/ You need to scroll down a bit and you can watch it. I’m sure you will love it. Please let me know what you think.
Hi Emma: I’m so excited that the trailer is officially airing! Lucky you, getting to see it before us here in Canada and the U.S. Wish I could be there too! I hope we’ll be seeing previews shortly as well, but in the meantime I will check out the link that you sent. Thanks for the update, keep in touch! Dee…
Hi Again Emma: I Just checked out the link and saw the trailer. WOW! It definitely IS amazing! Seeing the trailer makes this highly anticipated movie that much closer to becoming a reality. If the entire movie is as exciting as the trailer looks, then we’re in for a real treat. Heath looks so wonderful as well, God bless him, I’m really excited to see this movie. Dee…
Hi Dee, I am so glad you loved it, i knew you would. I know i keep on but i really am so excited about seeing the film too. It is such a shame we can’t both see it at the same time and then we could compare notes! You’ll have to start saving and pop to the UK for a visit in October! I am so grateful to have someone who feels the same about Heath and this film. My poor husband is bored to tears with me for going on about it and also hogging the laptop! He doesn’t know what he’s missing! Take care and i’m sure we’ll have more to discuss soon, Em.
Hi Em: Yes, it’s nice to have a fellow Heath fan across the miles, actually I’m originally from England (the Midlands), I emigrated to Canada with my family in 1974. For sure we will keep in touch, looking forward to chatting with you again soon and sharing further updates. Dee…
Hi Emma: Are you on Facebook? I tried looking you up and saw several people with your name. If you are interested, let me know which one is you, and I’ll send you my contact information and add you as a friend. Dee…
Hi, unfortunately i am not on Facebook but would love to stay in touch. My husband will shout at me for putting it on here but my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org Would love to hear from you, Em.
Like many here, I can’t wait for this movie! Seem and love the trailer. Heath is fantastic, as expected. I must say that my eyes got teary, I surely miss him!
