I don't know about you, but the OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL trailer kinda blew me away. It looks... elegant, for want of a better word, and not that Sam Raimi can't be elegant, but this certainly doesn't look like it was made in some backwoods cabin in Michigan, either. Some of the imagery was just jawdropping, and it seems that Raimi has decided to just grab as much from the 1939 film as he possibly can. It may be a prequel, but it looks like a reverential one.
So, here's some lovely shots of the movie, and as you can see (click to embiggen) this is a lot wider in scope than perhaps many believed. Anyone else get that old fashioned Albert Whitlock matte painting vibe?
OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL opens next Spring.
