Oz, The Great And Powerful release date March 8, 2013.
The About face: Sam Raimi, director of the three Spiderman movies from the early 2000s, starring Tobey Maguire, returns to the big screen with a fantastical movie depicting the origin of The Wizard of Oz.
The Wild side: Walt 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.
The Movie facts: Oz, The Great And Powerful is more than likley going to make more money than Disney's Alice In Wonderland remake.
