Oz: The Great and Powerful Header

Disney is all over the big game tonight. The studio has premiered a new television spot for Oz The Great and Powerful during tonight’s Super Bowl and now it is online.

You can watch it here below.

Essentially a prequel to The Wizard of Oz, James Franco plays the eponymous future wizard in his early days as a circus magician who gets swept away in his hot air balloon to the wonderful land of Oz thanks to a twister (Auntie Em! Auntie Em!) and encounters the land’s many magical creatures, including three beautiful witches played by Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis, and Michelle Williams. However all is not all wondrous CGI backdrops and unlimited power and fortune, and Franco’s character will take a most extraordinary journey on his way to becoming that man behind the curtain….PAY NO ATTENTION TO THAT MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN!!!

Oz: The Great and Powerful 02

Sam Raimi will take audiences to the land of Oz once more with Oz: The Great and Powerful, the prequel to The Wizard of Oz. The film reunites Raimi with his Spider-Man trilogy star James Franco, who plays Oscar Diggs, a sideshow magician who lifts off in a hot air balloon with dreams of making it big only to get caught in a storm and crash land in the mystical other world. Earlier this year we saw a trailer and a panel for the film at Comic-Con.

But before Disney can release a new trailer for the film, the studio has released a slew of new images that are sure to whet your Oz appetite. Check them out below.

The most magical kingdoms on Earth are unfortunately not spared from mistakes taking place. Though the Disney theme parks, resorts and ships are almost perfect in every way in how they operate, every now and then a blunder or error temporarily disrupts the magic.

In this edition of Disney In Depth, I’ll provide some commentary on a variety of funny and regrettable videos found on YouTube that even make Goofy appear less clumsy.

The Wizard of Oz Image

Are you one of the many who do not get why every single movie needs to be released in 3D these days? Well, saddle up friends—it’s about to start getting worse.

Warner Brothers sent out a massive press release detailing some equally massive upcoming releases in celebration of their 90th anniversary, including a 100-movie DVD and 50-movie Blu-ray sets (but no 100-movie Blu-ray sets?!) with some of their best titles. You can see the full press release with a rundown of all the titles they’ll feature at the source link below.

But more interestingly, WB also announced that they will be converting the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz to 3D.

SDCC 2012: Oz: The Great and Powerful panel

Oz: The Great and Powerful is Sam Raimi‘s prequel to the 1939 adaptation of L. Frank Baum‘s classic book. It stars James Franco as the titular wizard, and Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams as the witches of Oz.

San Diego Comic-Con moderator Chris Hardwick (The Nerdist podcast) introduced director Sam Raimi with a montage of his past films, including Spider-Man, Drag Me To Hell, the Evil Dead series, and The Quick and the Dead, amongst others. Raimi described Comic-Con as “geek central,” and says he loves coming here. He said Oz is based on L. Frank Baum’s stories, but is really the story of the Wizard’s journey to Oz, and his relationship with Glinda, the Good Witch.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “All DC, All The Time” MK2Fac3 and “There’s Another Publisher Besides Marvel?” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of November 9, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

What day is it? Wednesday? Well, I’ll be chicken feathered! It’s time for new comics! And this week, well this week… is kinda light! Especially on the indie front.

There’s loads of talent and interesting characters out there, and it just so happens that we’re going to talk about them even if they are a result of the corporate publishing machines. Wait, what are we talking about, comics? Never mind, let’s do that! Here’s a bunch of new comics that are coming out this week!
