Rachel Weisz Gets Wicked on New 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' Poster
While trekking out to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the Star Trek Into Darkness prologue in IMAX theaters, I came upon a new poster for Oz: The Great and Powerful that hadn't yet been released anywhere else. And lo and behold, today that poster shows up on the Internet. There's a new one sheet that gives Rachel Weisz (?) the dark spotlight as the Wicked Witch. It's much less colorful than the triptych banner that showed up a little while ago, and frankly, my favorite one yet. Of course, we could do without the standard debris and sparks that have come to dominate posters nowadays, but whatever. See the poster!
When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well. Also features the three witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams). Disney's fantastical adventure Oz The Great and Powerful, directed by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Dark Man, Spider-Man, Drag Me to Hell), imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. From a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire. Disney will be sending us back to Oz on March 8th, 2013 next year. See you then!
