2 TV Spots for Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful
With just over two months to go before it hits the huge screen, Disney have more recently given us a brilliant new trailer back in November, followed by a familiar face in a new poster last month. And in celebration of the New Year, the studio have released two TV spots to get the anticipation rolling for Raimi’s latest blockbuster.
“When Oscar Diggs, 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 & fortune are his for the taking – that is until he meets three witches, Theodora, Evanora & Glinda, who are not convinced he is the tremendous wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz & its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is satisfactory & who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity – & even a bit of wizardry – Oscar transforms himself not only into the tremendous & powerful Wizard of Oz yet into a better man as well.”
James Franco tops a brilliant cast, starring alongside Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Zach Braff (who moreover lends his voice in a dual role), Abigail Spencer, Tim Holmes, & Joey King.
Raimi is directing from a script by Mitchell Kapner (The Whole Nine Yards) & David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), with Danny Elfman (Spider-Man) once more taking scoring duties for the director.
Oz The Great & Powerful will be released in 3D & IMAX 3D in the UK & US on 8th March, 2013, which is unquestionably going to be a date you ought to commit to memory. This is going to be brilliant. For now, here are the two new TV spots to enjoy. Happy New Year.
