The Oz: The Great and Powerful poster released last week was nothing short of a disaster, but thankfully it seems like that was the exception, not the rule. The stills revealed earlier this week were all quite pretty, and this new poster featuring the leads (James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz) isn’t looking so bad either.
Directed by Sam Raimi, Oz: The Great and Powerful opens March 8.
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
