THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present-day. It tells the story of Dr. Parnassus and his extraordinary ‘Imaginarium’, a traveling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. In this captivating, explosive and wonderfully imaginative race against time, Dr. Parnassus must fight to save his daughter in a never-ending landscape of surreal obstacles – and undo the mistakes of his past once and for all!

The film stars HEATH LEDGER (Tony), CHRISTOPHER PLUMMER (Doctor Parnassus), VERNE TROYER (Percy), ANDREW GARFIELD (Anton), LILY COLE (Valentina) and TOM WAITS (Mr. Nick), with JOHNNY DEPP (Tony), COLIN FARRELL (Tony) and JUDE LAW (Tony).

THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS will be released December 25th, 2009.

From Cormac McCarthy, author of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, comes the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of the beloved, best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, THE ROAD. Academy Award-nominee Viggo Mortensen leads a distinguished cast featuring Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron, Academy Award-winner Robert Duvall, Michael Kenneth Williams, Molly Parker, Guy Pearce and young newcomer Kodi Smit-McPhee in this epic post-apocalyptic tale of the survival of a father (Mortensen) and his young son (Smit-McPhee) as they journey across a barren American landscape that has been destroyed by a mysterious cataclysm. THE ROAD boldly imagines a future in which men are pushed to the worst and the best that they are capable of – a future in which a father and his son are sustained by love and an unshakable morality even in the face of total devastation.

RED CLIFF, the triumphant return of action-cinema master John Woo, opens theatrically in New York on November 18, followed by a national rollout on November 25.

A massive hit in Asia and the most expensive Chinese film ever made, RED CLIFF reunites Woo and international superstar Tony Leung for the first time since the 1992 classic HARD BOILED. A breathtaking war epic, RED CLIFF brings to the screen the legendary tale of the Battle of Red Cliff that took place in 208 AD and was immortalized in the classic Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

RED CLIFF features several of the most well known Asian actors in the world working today, such as Tony Leung (LUST, CAUTION;IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE), Takeshi Kaneshiro (CHUNGKING EXPRESS, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS), Zhang Fengyi (FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE, THE EMPEROR AND THE ASSASSIN), and Chang Chen (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON).

Two strong and beautiful women are at the heart of this evocative story, playing key parts in the outcome. Chiling Lin, currently known as the most beautiful woman in Taiwan, plays the wife of Viceroy Zhou Yu (Tony Leung), Xiao Quiao. Zhao Wei (also known as Vicky Zhao) is a household name in China for both her feature film and television roles. She plays Sun Shangxiang, the stout-hearted sister of warlord Sun Quan (Chang Chen), and it is her exceptional bravery spying behind enemy lines which plays a significant role in turning Zhou Yu’s army’s fortunes around.
