On the heels of a recently completed North American tour, in which saw the band parting ways with vocalist Annette Olson and ReVamp vocalist Floor Jansen filling in, Nightwish has posted the full theatrical preview for the upcoming "Imaginaerum" movie release. The film is based on band's latest album was based (see Metal Underground's review at this location). The film is set to open in Finland on November 23, 2012, but has has no set release date for North America. More information on the movie can be found at the official film website located at this location.

"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.
