I still don't know what to think about OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL. At all. The first trailer sufficiently wowed me, but I also (like most of you) loathed ALICE IN WONDERLAND beyond all possible description.  And as intriguing as Sam Raimi's visual mind/storytelling capability is, too much of the "CGI Wonderland" effect is going to sink whatever great acting/character work the main stars (and creature stunt people) are putting in to the project.

I also can't help but still wish we had Robert Downey Jr. in the lead role, but then again, if the movie turns out as we fear it will then it may be better that he skipped out for other projects. 

At the end of the day though, there's only so much judgement that can be done without further evidence to back it up.  I hear that a new trailer will be dropping soon, so in the meantime here are four new photos to tide you over.  OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL comes to cinemas near you in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on March 8th, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I was about to type out "It's too bad we can't see some Rachel Weisz-Mila Kunis action going on in this movie," and then I remembered: they're sisters. Damn. Another project then? Make it happen, Hollywood!

I agree w/ those saying this should not be compared to Burton's Alice. Not YET, at least. Besides, the visuals of it weren't really what was wrong with it . . .

Hehe

This one's gonna be gooood. Raimi is much more capable of bringing an authentic representation of his vision to the screen than Tim Burton, so the Alice comparison is unfair. They're totally different. And Raimi proved he can handle grand scale with Spider-Man, then scaled back with Drag Me To Hell, which proved he has found that inner soul again that was missing when he got involved with the overwhelming blockbuster-osity of Spidey and co. I think that there's going to be some good old

I think that there's going to be some good old fashioned "movie magic" when this comes out. p.s. the monkey looks great

The winged monkey definitely has more of a Jumanji vibe to it than, say, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes when it comes to CG monkiness.
