Time Bandits Competition

Win! Three copies of the brand new Blu-ray and a limited edition poster up for grabs

Even in a career which began with Monty Python, few of Terry Gilliam’s films are more beloved than Time Bandits .

The wonderfully whimsical children’s fantasy about a young boy’s journey through the space-time continuum in the company of six cantankerous dwarves has been digitally restored, and will be released on 26 August, packed full of brand new extras.

For the tech-heads, it’s a 2k-resolution restoration from the original negative, approved by Gilliam, complete with a 5.1 DTS-HD audio mix. The lengthy list of new extras includes interviews with Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, optical effects maestro Kent Houston, David Warner, costume designer James Acheson and production designer Milly Burns.

Even if you’ve got four copies of the film already (er, like us) it’s well worth upgrading. To be in with a chance of winning one of three copies on Blu-ray (along with a limited edition poster for the person in first place) answer the simple question through this linky wormhole .

And once you've done that, why not watch this all-new interview with Terry Gilliam where he discusses Time Bandits ' restoration and his new film The Zero Theorem .
