It is finally there! The much anticipated trailer of the much anticipated movie Imaginaerum of the symphonic metal band Nightwish is online! You can watch the trailer below :

Imaginaerum tells the story of an elderly composer, Tom, who suffers
from severe dementia. As he has had the disease for years and has
regressed into childhood, he remembers practically nothing from his
adult life. His music, friends, all his past including the memory of his
daughter are a blur in his fragile mind. All he has left is the
imagination of a ten year old boy. As he drifts away into coma, it seems
impossible to get back what he has lost. Or is it?

The film is a journey between two different dimensions. Tom travels
through his imaginary world seeking answers and finding memories, while
his daughter, Gem, tries to recover the bond she had once shared with
her father in the real world. As they have become more and more distant
from each other over the years, and as there is even greater obstacles
separating them now, Tom’s coma and his imminent death, Gem’s project
feels doomed to failure. However, through Tom’s darkest secrets, Gem
discovers the path she must follow in order to find her father again.

There are some questions we must ask ourselves before entering the world
of Imaginaerum. What is most important in life? Can the power of
memories protect us during our last moments? Will our imagination help
us find the spark of life in the deepest darkness? Can we still find
love after bitter forgiveness?

Imaginaerum is an emotional fantasy-adventure powered by the music of
Nightwish. The story reminds us of our childhood where the smallest but
most precious thing meant everything and losing it would have left an
everlasting scar. Now its time to reopen the wound and see what became
of it, but above all, where it came from.
The score of Imaginaerum will be released on 09.11.2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. You can order the album from here.
