Trailer for your Weekend: Oz the Great and Powerful

Title plate of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (not...

Title plate of Baum’s very first Oz book.

Apologies for the lateness of this week’s trailer. Unfortunately there was a death in the family last week so I have been away from the computer.

Anyone who has followed this blog for long will know that James Franco is one of my favourite actors working today, predominately because of his intriguing choice of roles. To see him in an Oz set adventure, not to mention the really interesting choice of director and three dynamite female leads, has shot Oz the Great and Powerful to the top of my ‘to see list’. Especially after I heard recently that the producers of this were really looking to pay homage to a number of Baum’s books that first created the Oz universe. Sure, it looks like it could be the latest annoying Burton/Depp literature adaptation, but with them not in the director/actor places, this should hopefully be something quite different.

What do you guys think of this?
