Woman’s touch

Posted by · 5:37 am · October 15th, 2009

We’ve seen a lot of posters for “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” highlighting its starry male cast, and they’ve mostly left me cold. So is it a coincidence that this new design — which places relative newcomer Lily Cole in the spotlight — is the one that finally does it for me? Or am I just being a man about this?

    I think you mean Lily Cole. Cheryl’s the one on X Factor.

    I think it’s an honest reaction to a really beautiful poster — this conveys more magic, intrigue, and fun than the previous ones.

    This somehow reminds me of a Juicy Couture ad.

    At first I wasn’t all that pumped about this film, but maybe, just maybe, it might end up exceeding expectations. Fingers crossed. Does anyone know exactly how much screen time Ledger has in the film?? I’m also eager to see how the other three actors take different riffs on the same character. Should be interesting at the very least.

    Haha, of course I meant Lily. I currently have Cheryl staring into my living room all day thanks to a billboard outside, so I guess she’s entered my subconscious.

    The idea of a Cheryl Cole-Terry Gilliam collaboration is so wrong it’s right, though.

    A superior one sheet –I so desire SPC to follow suit but they’ll likely just use a still of Heath Ledger from the movie and call it poster art.

    Oh god, now I want Cheryl Cole to become an actress. You know she wants to!
