A new trailer for Oz The Great And Powerful from director Sam Raimi came out this morning. This new trailer features a lot more character interaction between the actors than the last. There’s plenty of new footage to be seen of Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and James Franco.
I still have some misgivings about the amount of cgi in the film, but I’m starting to warm up to it and will probably see it when it is released on March 8, 2013.
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot–fame and fortune are his for the taking–that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity–and even a bit of wizardry–Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
