Oz: the Great and Powerful Trailer

One upcoming movie that definitely was nowhere near my radar was Oz: The Great and Powerful. But it is now.

Directed by Sam Raimi (who took up this fantasy project after deciding to scuttle Spider-Man 4), the movie has an impressive cast: Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Abigail Spencer and James Franco. The… well, let’s call him… eccentric… Franco plays Oscar Diggs, a small-time carnival hustler who is swept to the magical land of Oz by a tornado. There, instead of new sheep to fleece, he encounters three witches and must find the kernal of good within himself and become a great and powerful wizard for real.

The story sounds rather pedestrian to me, but what captured my attention was this terrific trailer. I love the black-and-white opening and the switch to color when Oscar lands in Oz. Hmmm, it reminds me of something, but what?

Look for OTGAP on March 8, 2013
