Here's the first trailer for Sam Raimi's "Oz: The Great and Powerful" starring James Franco, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Zach Braff (voice only), Mila Kunis, and (of course) Ted Raimi. My expectations are a bit mixed. I love Raimi (I'm trying to forget and forgive Spider-Man 3) and the cast of actors is top notch. I don't think Franco and Michelle Williams, at this point in their careers, would just phone it in on a film like this in a cash-grab effort. They're artists. The screenplay was penned by Mitchell Kapner (The Whole Nine Yards, Romeo Must Die) and David Lindsay-Abaire (Robots, Inkheart, the upcoming Rise Of The Guardians, and oddly enough the Poltergeist remake). Those two aren't exactly anything to get excited about.
Take a look at the trailer below, leave your thoughts in the comments. So far, it looks great...but so did Tim Burton's "Alice In Wonderland", which whom this film shares producers. Post your thoughts in the comments.
