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.
