Some bewitching poster art from Sam Raimi's Oz the Great and Powerful

3 years agoby:

Just in time for Halloween (and, let me say Happy Halloween to all the Schmoes!), we have a new poster from Sam Raimi's upcoming OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, featuring the infamous Wicked Witch of the West/Elanora, who will be portrayed by none other than Rachel Weisz.  It's a vibrant, mystical-looking image, which lends itself well to the world of Oz. 

Spooktacular!:

Pretty cool, eh?  Although this project is more ALICE IN WONDERLAND than EVIL DEAD, I think it has the potential to be really good, especially with Raimi in the mix.  Add in the sharp cast of James Franco, Mila Kunis, Zach Braff, and Michelle Williams and it definitely has the makings of a fun adventure.  Personally, I'm not holding it up to the original WIZARD OF OZ, but allowing it to stand on its own as a prequel.  It's obvious there will be differences (less singing, more effects) and since it's not a remake I'm going to remain optimistic.

OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL gets swept into theaters on March 8, 2013.

Could end up being great (maybe even powerful) but Franco doesn't fill me with confidence in the role. It's a shame RDJ bailed on this.

My Hopes Are With This....

me being an Ozophile and all. But I have my doubts and don't want it to be another horrid "Alice".

Honestly, how many good movies has James Franco ever done a good job in? Honestly?

I hope I'm wrong.

Theodora (Kunis) becomes the Wicked Witch of the West, not Weisz who plays her older sister, Evanora.

If it had the same look with no CGI like the original, I would be psyched

But it isn't so it's nothing special

Looks more like Mila!

...and it is a kinda spoilerish if so, because the trailer shows her as the good and Weisz as the evil one.

Tidbit: Fuck Weisz. Kill Williams. Marry Kunis.

Weisz?

I thought it was Kunis who was becoming the Wicked Witch?

Kill Williams, fuck Weisz, marry Kunis.

Oh and every adaptation of Wizard of Oz has been terrible aside from the original. This looks no different and more of a sequel to Alice in Wonderland.
