2 Oz: The Great and Powerful TV SPOTS

New spots that celebrate the new year!

Disney and Sam Raimi have released two new TV Spots that celebrate the New Year and Oz The Great and Powerful. Check out both posted here. There doesn’t seem to be much int he realm of new footage so don’t worry about spoilers. 

The Plot: When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well.

Official Boilerplate: Disney’s fantastical adventure Oz The Great and Powerful, directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.

Oz The Great and Powerful arrives in theaters March 8, 2013.

These spots popped up everywhere on New Year's. It seemed an unusual ad campaign style for this type of film. I felt like it was counting down for a doomsday movie.

I'm hoping my kids will want to see this.

This film looks interesting and I am looking forward to seeing it.  But wasn't the whole crux of Wizard of Oz that the wizard was a con man who used Dorothy to do his dirty work?  If he becomes a "better man" in this film how do we reconcile that with him risking the life of a child for his own ends in Wizard of Oz?

I'm looking forward to this even though I'm starting to suffer from Kunis fatigue. Bitches that make it based solely on looks need to wear a muzzle and keep that gym membership active

Kunis Fatigue? They got pills for that. Don't operate heavy machinery after a dosage.

Karas, not sure if that is the only problem.  Though I thought the last movie made Dorthy seem like she just had a dream and Oz doesn't even exist at all, so really not sure it matters at all.  I've never read all the books, so don't really know the true story.

The black and white to color transition is classy and nice tip o the hat- Glad the director and producers decided to keep it in, as I hear there were some fights over it.
