An early Christmas gift

At this year’s Comic Con, I saw previews from several upcoming films that I’m eager to see. But none moreso than this one, which comes out on Christmas day. This trailer gives only a hint at the wonder and fun I saw in the clips Terry Gilliam screened from “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.”

    At the end of the trailer it announces a release date of October 16. Even better!

  2. Lee Wochner Says:

    That’s the UK release date. It’s still slated for a Christmas release here in the U.S.

  3. Uncle Rich Says:

    They get it before us? IT’S OBAMA’S FAULT!

  4. Lee Wochner Says:

    Why do “they” really get it before us?

    Probably because:

    a) it’s where Gilliam lives
    b) it’s probably independently financed and produced (with a major studio
    here just acting as distributor)
    c) because said major studio probably thinks it’s better as a Christmas
    d) because they may be pursuing an Oscar campaign; movies released earlier
    get forgotten
    e) because they’re anti-American knaves!!!
