Gorgeous UK Poster for Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Another gorgeous new UK poster for Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus has hit the web today. I first saw this poster on SlashFilm and fell in love with it as well (just like everyone is once they see it). I love how all the little Terry Gilliam "trinkets" are popping out of every side, it's a very fitting poster for the film, and the beautiful Lily Cole sitting nude is just… wow. I'm in London this week (where it hits theaters starting next Friday) and I've seen a lot of the blue posters on buses, but none of these. This is some of the best marketing for a Terry Gilliam movie I've ever seen. And don't forget to watch the trailer!

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is directed by beloved filmmaker Terry Gilliam, of the Monty Python movies, Time Bandits, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Twelve Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and The Brothers Grimm previously. The screenplay was co-written by Gilliam and Charles McKeown of Gilliam's Brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen previously. This first showed at the Cannes Film Festival and is being distributed by Sony Pictures Classics here in the US. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus arrives in limited theaters starting on December 25th, Christmas Day, then expands.

    Sweet. This makes me interested in the film despite the title making me think Mr Magorium's Wonder Imporium.

    #3 - It opens Christmas Day.

    Wow. That's an incredible homage to the style of 1960s/70s film posters. It has such a British Monty Pythonesque feel to it. They just don't make them like that any more. This should be used for North America as well. It's better than the other ones. It's just got some a wonderful sense of chaos to it. And unlike the other one, the imperfect photoshopping works in the context of this style. The other ones just look horrible in my opinion.
