In the present day, immortal 1,000-year-old Doctor Parnassus (Christopher Plummer) leads a travelling theatre troupe that offers audience members a chance to go beyond reality through a magical mirror in his possession.[3] Members of the troupe include a sleight of hand expert, Anton (Andrew Garfield), and a dwarf, Percy (Verne Troyer); Parnassus had been able to guide the imagination of others through a deal with the Devil (Tom Waits), who now comes to collect on the arrangement,[4] targeting the doctor's daughter (Lily Cole). The troupe, which is joined by a mysterious outsider named Tony (portrayed by Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell),[5] embark through parallel worlds to rescue the girl.[6]

That's right, folk. You read that correctly. Heath Ledger, and Johnny Depp, and Jude Law, and Colin Farrell. Holy shit, right? Not only that, but fuckin' Tom Waits as The Devil. And Christopher Plummer? This movie's going to be off the fuckin' chain!

I've been following this movie for quite a while, trying to figure out the US release. Right now, Wiki is reporting a US release of December 25. But that's changed so many times that it really can't be trust. You lucky fucks over in Europe have some dates, though!
Italy 16 October 2009
UK 16 October 2009
Australia 29 October 2009
New Zealand 29 October 2009
Belgium 11 November 2009
France 11 November 2009
Germany 3 December 2009
Netherlands 3 December 2009

So, boys and girls, let's talk about how fucking awesome this movie's going to be.

    This does sound pretty cool, I like all the actors listed.

    Tom Waits is cool too I guess.

    I was really excited for this before Heath Ledger died because it seems really interesting. Then he died. And I was sad. And then Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Collin Ferrel signed on. And I was all

    Fuuuuuuuuck yeah!

    Because it was Heath Ledger's role? And he died? And they were all, "Man we loved him. let's take over his role as transformations and it will be so fucking awesome."

    I'd be legitimately surprised if this saw more theaters than Moon. While it has a substantially larger budget, as far as I can tell it has received no promotion whatsoever.

    did I read this right

    Ledger, Depp, Law and Farrell all play the same character?
