The IMAGINARIUM of Doctor PARNASSUS u.s. Poster

Here's the poster for the U.S. release of Terry Gilliam's new film, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. The fonts and the quality of the U.S. poster is lacking in comparison to the amazing Lily Cole designed Poster, and the slightly less thrilling Poster for the film's Oct. 16th U.K. release.

All of us here in the in NYC and LA will have to wait until Christmas Day to catch Christopher Plummer as the immortal Parnassus, Lily Cole as his daughter Valentina; Verne Troyer as his friend and assistant Percy; Andrew Garfield as Anton, Tom Waits as devilish Mr Nick; and of course Heath Ledger in his final performance as the mysterious Tony, and Johnny DeppJude Law and Colin Farrell filling in his role as his magic-mirror traveling alter-egos. Every one else will have to sit tight until the film begins to open wide in early 2010.

We've been nothing but memorized with all the footage we've seen for the film so far. The performances look great and Gilliam's rich visual style are in full fledge for his latest film. I've got high hopes for this, and can't wait to catch it when it hits theaters.

Check out the poster and let us know what you think.

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 travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Dr Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. Long ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr Nick, in which he won immortality. Many centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his first-born reached its 16th birthday he or she would become the property of Mr Nick. Valentina is now rapidly approaching this ‘coming of age’ milestone and Dr Parnassus is desperate to protect her from her impending fate. Mr Nick arrives to collect but, always keen to make a bet, renegotiates the wager. Now the winner of Valentina will be determined by whoever seduces the first five souls. Enlisting a series of wild, comical and compelling characters in his journey, Dr Parnassus promises his daughter’s hand in marriage to the man that helps him win. 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...
