Nothing goes better with statuesque legs than a mini dress. And Lily Cole certainly worked hers at the Japanese premiere of “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.” So jealous right now! [Tokyo, 1/14/10] Keep reading »
It’s Christmas Day, which isn’t just a huge movie day for non-Christians, it’s also where Santa-loving folk go to distract themselves from the postpartum present depression. Thankfully, on such an occasion where everyone will need somewhere to go after gifts and/or Chinese food, there are four amazing-looking movies coming out this week, “Nine,” “It’s Complicated,” “Sherlock Holmes,” and a limited release of “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.” So put on your matching sweaters, hide a thermos of cocoa and peppermint schnapps in your bag, and go see a movie. Happy Holidays! Keep reading »
Supermodel and star of “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” Lily Cole looked as gorgeous as ever at the premiere last night, but it looks like a chunk of her pinstriped suit went missing. (No offense, but is it just us or does this outfit remind you of something Paula Abdul would have worn circa 1994?) [NYC, 12/7/09] Keep reading »
Heath Ledger was still filming “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” when he died in January 2008, so director Terry Gilliam had to get creative when it came to finishing his film, while still honoring Heath’s work. He had three other actors — Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law — step in for the remainder of Heath’s scenes, believing the wackiness of the story itself supported the character having an evolving physical appearance. The trailer for the film has been released and it looks amazing. Check it out above. Keep reading »
We seriously can’t wait for “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” to come out, but for now, we’ll settle for its star, Model Citizen Lily Cole’s outstanding hairdo. She could’ve gone for a perfectly polished blow-dry (like the ones we’re beginning to see on the red carpet again), but we like this toned-down version. To get the look, blow-dry until it’s almost there but the ends are ever so slightly damp. Work a cream stylant like John Frieda Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme into the ends and twist large sections (about four total) around with your fingers. Air-dry and traipse off to your film premiere or, ah, work. [Paris, 9/30/09] Keep reading »
We’ve been hearing bits and pieces about Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” for a while, ever since Heath Ledger died during production and his role had to be recast with Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell. From the looks of it, this movie will be a feast for the eyes, and I’m not just talking about the special effects. Keep reading »
Terry Gilliam is an out there director—he’s the one behind “12 Monkeys” and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” His newest flick, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” premiered at Cannes on Friday. Heath Ledger was originally the star, and filming was about halfway done when…well, you know. Gilliam decided to rework the role so that Heath shares it with Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law. Hello, hot back-ups!
“Imaginarium” involves a deal with a devil, which allows people to go through a magical mirror and explore their imaginations. Uh, strange? Obviously, we wish it could have been Heath the whole way through, but we figured we’d take a look at the three megastars who filled in at the last minute. And while it’s tempting to just throw all three of these guys in the “shag” column and walk away, here’s how we’d divide ‘em up… Keep reading »
