Oz The Great and Powerful
A second trailer has come in for Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful, and since we're big fans of both Raimi and the Wizard, we thought we'd pass it on just in case you are, too.
One last goodie from this week's Entertainment Weekly. Get ready to dig on the lovely Michelle Williams as the annoyingly goody-good Glinda. Hopefully the wicked witch will show up and pop her right out of that godforsaken bubble!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: The Wizard of Oz scared the hell out of me as a child. And then Return to Oz? That was a single hair shy of being a full-blown horror movie. That's why we can't wait to see Sam Raimi's take on the land over the rainbow.
The schedules for the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con Preview Night and Day 1 (July 11 and July 12) are now live, and we have the horror highlights for you here (along with a few panels of general interest). As always, though, be sure to check the official SDCC site for updates!
Composer Danny Elfman sure has a lot on his plate lately. He's signed on to score Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful and two Tim Burton projects, Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie, to name a few. We guess it wouldn't hurt to add Lionsgate's big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games to the list!
Well, just about a year has passed since we last spoke of the Sam Raimi-helmed Oz: The Great and Powerful, and we're still not sure how Dread worthy of a project it's going to be, but quite a bit of news has been coming out lately so we thought we'd share it with all the Raimi (and Oz) lovers out there.
When was the last time you watched the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz? As a kid I adored the movie. As a teenager I got really stoned while listening to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon as its soundtrack. Now, as an adult it officially scares the hell out of me. Oh, how times change. Could those scares transfer over to its prequel? How about if Sam Raimi is at the helm?
