First ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ Trailer

Posted by Max Lalanne on July 12, 2012

Disney has released the first trailer for “Oz the Great and Powerful,” Sam Raimi’s ambitious retelling of the classic Wizard of Oz story. Starring James Franco in the befuddled title role, along with Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz. It starts out squarish black-and-white (pretty much like the one that started it all, says Hollywood Elsewhere’s Jeffrey Wells) and eventually slowly stretches out to widescreen to accomodate the sudden attack of Tim Burton-ish psychedelic colors. How do I like it? Not impressed like I though I would be. Was expecting a more down-to-earth story or something.
