THE brilliantly creative fantasy film The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus comes to DVD, Blu-ray and download on March 29, 2010, with a fantastic set of extras.

Directed by veteran visionary Terry Gilliam and one of the most imaginative releases of recent years, the film has been nominated for two Oscars® and marks the last appearance of Heath Ledger.

Sumptuous and colourful, this complex movie has an A-list cast, including Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Colin Farrell, Lily Cole, Verne Troyer, Tom Waits, with Christopher Plummer as Dr. Parnassus.

The immortal Dr Parnassus (Plummer) holds the key to the Imaginarium, a wonderful place hidden in a ‘pop up’ travelling theatre, where people can explore the very depths of their imagination.

But the Doctor has more hidden depths than his friends in the theatre troupe are aware of and his immortality has come at a price – the soul of his daughter Valentina (Cole).

Unless Parnassus and Tony, the mysterious amnesiac whom he befriends (portrayed by Ledger plus Depp, Farrell and Law) can coax a few more souls to lose themselves in the Imaginarium, Valentina will become the prize in a deal that Parnassus has made with the Devil himself, Mr Nick (Tom Waits).
