New UK Poster for Gilliam's Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
An official UK quad poster for Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus has arrived online courtesy of Empire. I'm featuring it today not because it's a poster you'll see in your own theater, but rather because it's a fairly well-designed and a wonderfully fantastical poster. It's perfect for Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which I've seen a few times (read my review), just because its got all that Terry Gilliam weirdness put onto it (notice the floating Tom Waits in the background?). There are even floating head versions of Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell, who filled in for Heath Ledger after his death.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a modern-day fantasy adventure in which Dr. Parnassus has the extraordinary gift of inspiring the imaginations of others. Helped by his traveling theatre troupe, including his sarcastic and cynical sidekick Percy and versatile young Anton, Parnassus offers audience members the chance to transcend mundane reality by passing through a magical mirror into a fantastic universe of limitless imagination. However, Parnassus' magic comes at a price. For centuries he's been gambling with the devil, who is coming to collect his prize - Parnassus' precious daughter, Valentina on her birthday.
