The official trailer for Oz – The Great and Powerful was released today. I’m kind of curious about this movie, the premise seems interesting and the cast looks good. It stars James Franco as Oz, Michelle Williams as Glinda, Mila Kunis, and Rachel Weisz. However, after seeing the trailer (plus the fact that it’s being released in March isn’t a good sign) it looks too fantastical, and too much like Alice In Wonderland. I’ll probably still check it out because I’m interested. Honestly, I’m surprised there hasn’t been a big Hollywood movie about this subject already. Here is the premise and the trailer.
“A prequel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz that tells how the Wizard arrived in Oz became the ruler.”
Directed by: Sam Raimi
Screenplay: Mitchell Kapner
Release Date: March, 8, 2013
