There is certainly momentum gathering around Sam Raimi’s (Drag Me to Hell) forthcoming film Oz: The Great and Powerful. After a new poster was recently revealed and rumours of a new trailer soon to be released, we now have some brand new official images from the film courtesy of USA Today:
The fantasy adventure is a prequel to L. Frank Baum’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and focuses on the Wizard of Oz character, Oscar Diggs (James Franco). A small-time circus magician, Oscar finds himself in the vibrant Land of Oz, he where 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. Oscar is reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, and must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late.
The film is due to open on March 8 in 3D, 2D and IMAX and also stars Zach Braff (Scrubs), Abigail Spencer (This Means War), Tim Holmes (Real Steel), Martin Klebba (Zombieland) and Joey King (The Dark Knight Rises).
