Time Bandits (R2/UK BD) in October

Optimum Home Entertainment have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Time Bandits on 5th October 2009. Directed by Terry Gilliam who also co-wrote the film with Michael Palin, Time Bandits tells the story of a group of guerrilla dwarves who leave their jobs with The Supreme Being for a life of crime with a map they’ve stolen from their workplace. The map holds the secrets to time-holes in the fabric of creation, allowing the holders to go forward and back as they please. The gang intends to use the map to hunt treasure - which they have little skill at, and to steal - at which they fail miserably. One such journey lands them in the bedroom of a young boy Kevin, who joins them on their journey. Gilliam transports Kevin, the Bandits and audience alike through time and history to meet such random figures as Robin Hoo, Napoleon, and Agamemnon. Pursued however by an evil genius who will stop at nothing to get his hands on the map…

Priced at £15.99 RRP on DVD and £19.99 RRP on Blu-ray Disc, extras include:
