Oz the Great and Powerful
 
I love how it's kinda faithful to the original classic:D

It looks amazing and so much like the original (which is a great thing).

I am confused though. As far as the Wicked Witch of the West is concerned, wasn't this meant to be her years and years before 'TWOO'. Judging by the trailer it's exactly the same witch (different actress obviously!). Either way I don't mind, I love the witch!

Effects look quite ropey if i am honest and the design looks very similar to Alice In Wonderland which i didn't particularly think was a great movie, still holding out hope that this is a good film. Like the use of B&W to colour a nod to Wizard Of Oz

I'm not sure tbh, I just know it’s a prequel.

Strange that they’re releasing it in March though:confused:

Surely it should be released around Christmas time:)

Looking forward to it anyway….

One of my most anticipated movies. Looks great from the trailer.

tracystapes 14-11-2012 17:22

I would've thought a Christmas release would've been better (oddly enough, to the poster who said it is similar to 'Alice In Wonderland' it is being released in March, same time as 'Alice' was in 2010).

I love the nod to the sepia/black and white segments too :)

tracystapes 07-01-2013 15:57

What date is it out in the UK? It's released March 8th in America.

tracystapes 24-01-2013 17:23

Two new posters are being revealed tomorrow :)

I'm looking forward to this as Michelle Williams is in it.

grimtales1 24-01-2013 17:32

I like the nods to the original but I'm also getting an "Alice in Wonderland" vibe here which another poster mentioned and I didnt think was a particularly great film. I sense an inappropriate relationship/chemistry between the Wiz and Good witch :o
It just seems like they transferred Dorothy's story to the 'Wizard' (maybe with bits of 'The Wiz' - the 70;s version), is this a prequel? :confused:

tracystapes 25-01-2013 09:39

Yes it's a prequel (I think) but from what I've read, it's based around the MGM movie so it's designed to look similar to 'TWOO' which we all know and love.

This film looks like a tacky lump of crap. The Wizard of Oz was one of the greatest invocations of pure movie magic in the history of cinema. This looks like cheap, video-game tat; just like the abortion that was Burton's Alice in Wonderland.

I'm so pumped for this movie it's insane

tracystapes 06-02-2013 18:29

Mariah Carey is singing the theme for the film! :)

Me too. She looks beautiful in the trailer.

tracystapes 09-02-2013 18:28

I love Michelle Williams.

How long ago was this announced that it'd be a movie? Has it been a long time in production?

RAZORBACK 20-02-2013 21:34

Managed to get tickets for a preview screening on March 2nd:D...

maddiesdoor 20-02-2013 21:36

I can't wait to see the Wicked Witch of the west

maddiesdoor 22-02-2013 15:08

Mila Kunis is on The Graham Norton show next Friday :D

maddiesdoor 27-02-2013 17:56

Has anyone seen the movie yet (previews)?

Delboy219 27-02-2013 18:38

OMG OMG OMG! :D:D:D

So excited for this! I can't wait to see the triumphant return of Adebisi, Schillinger and Beecher. :D

paperplanes_ 27-02-2013 23:48

Mila Kunis my girlcrush is in it and James Franco who I think is great :) Im looking forward to seeing it.

maddiesdoor 28-02-2013 11:08

The London premiere is tonight :)

maddiesdoor 01-03-2013 10:47

It's received good reviews so far!

She looked lovely at the London Premier.

It's such a shame I can't travel, I'd have liked to see her there.

I'm hoping this is as close to a remake as we can come without actually remaking 'The Wizard of Oz'.

Hopefully it will have the spirit of the film.
