A new trailer, TV spot and movie clip for "Oz the Great and Powerful" have all been released today. The two trailers insist on aggresivley marketing the movie as a full blown action epic that seems to have more in common with this week's "Jack the Giant Slayer" than "The Wizard of Oz". Directed by Sam Raimi, the movie stars James Franco, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz. "Oz the Great and Powerful" opens on March 8, in 3D.
Watch the trailers and clip after the jump.
"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."
