The film that established Terry Gilliam as more than just Monty Python’s resident animator, this delightfully inventive children’s fantasy follows young protagonist Kevin (Craig Warnock) who finds himself travelling through holes in the space-time continuum in the company of half a dozen fractious dwarfs. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray rerelease of Gilliam’s time-travelling caper this Monday (26 August), we’ve kindly been provided with THREE Blu-ray copies of Time Bandits to give away to our readers, courtesy of Arrow Video. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
On his voyage, Kevin encounters Agamemnon (Sean Connery), Robin Hood (John Cleese), Napoleon Bonaparte (Ian Holm) and winds up as a passenger on the Titanic – although not necessarily in that order. But is this just random entertainment laid on for history fan Kevin s benefit, or part of a wider struggle between the forces of good (Ralph Richardson) and evil (David Warner)? At the time, Time Bandits was a rare example of a small-budget British film successfully taking on Hollywood blockbusters. Now, it’s a much-loved fantasy classic bursting with inspired images and ideas.
To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of Time Bandits on Blu-ray, just answer the following simple question:
What is the title of Terry Gilliam’s next film?
a) The Zero Theorem
b) The Zero Dark Thirty Theorem
c) The Zero to Hero Theorem
