Cool Videos: See the opening credit sequence for Sam Raimi's Oz The Great and Powerful

I have yet to see OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, due to the lack of through-the-roof reviews mostly, but do look forward to checking it out someday.  Regardless of my perception, however, the film is still a big hit and with a sequel in the works it seems that the world of Oz is here to stay (again).  Today, Disney released the opening credits sequence online, which is pretty cool if you haven't already seen the film.  It's got the creative energy I'd expect from Raimi, but with Danny Elfman's score playing underneath and the overall mechanics of it, the whole thing is eerily Tim Burton-esque.  And, that's not a bad thing.

I don't think every movie needs a long, drawn-own opening, but I certainly appreciate when filmmakers take the time to give the first few seconds of the film a little more love than a boring title over a random shot (see: A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD). 

Enjoy the show!:

OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and Zach Braff is currently raking in Emerald City-level gold at your local theater.
