Empire has debuted a new UK poster for THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS, Terry Gilliam's latest opus. My immediate reaction was, "did someone just figure out how to Photoshop a floating head?" Is anyone gonna forget that everyone that is awesome/swoon-worthy (i.e. Heath Ledger, Jude Law, Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp) is in this movie? I think their names at the bottom of the poster would have sufficed quite nicely, but that is just one (wo)man's opinion.

The poster does a good job of illustrating that we are in for one hell of a whimsical ride with its hot air balloons, trolley cars, and floating umbrella dudes. After the death of Heath Ledger, the all-star cast, and its Christmas release, I would imagine this film has quite a great deal of appeal to moviegoers, so to prominently display the film's stars in one poster seems a bit unnecessary. Perhaps a series of character posters might be a better (not to mention more collectible) way to promote the film.
