'Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' trailer

To cover the slack? I don't know if, since they are all wearing the same outfit as Ledger, they rewrote it so that the character changes the way he looks, a-la Doctor Who even though he's the same person/thing?

Here are four extra pictures to show you the beautiful production design/crazy world of Doctor Parnassus:
