A new poster has been released for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and it actually highlights Heath Ledger. The previous ones have either been collaborative efforts, or centered on co-star Lily Cole. The latest one sheet comes to us via /Film and features more Heath and less of everybody else, just the way we like it.

After getting a good look at this poster, you will probably think that the film is based on a forbidden love story, and that everyone featured at the bottom are involved in a conspiracy to break up the happy couple. That’s not really the case, but its easy to see how that might be a valuable angle to take with the marketing of this film. If you want a first impression of what you can expect from the movie, read our First Look response and see our pros and cons from Parnassus.
As stated earlier, its good to see Ledger take front and center on the poster, because quite honestly he will be the main draw for the film. Not to undercut the other talented actors that are featured but the movie will have sentimental value for many of his fans, and Sony was smart enough to recognize that when they printed this up.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is directed by Terry Gilliam and hits theaters on Christmas Day.
