New Images from Sam Raimi’s ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’

On Thursday we brought you the first trailer for Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful, which will tell the origin story behind Oscar Diggs, the man they would eventually come to call the Wonderful Wizard of Oz (James Franco). Terence, representing the site at Comic-Con, also delivered an intimate press conference with the director and a few of the co-stars (including Michelle Williams – who will play Glinda the Good Witch – and Mila Kunis) which you can listen to here. Rachel Weisz, Abigail Spencer, and Zach Braff also star in this interesting and daring prequel to the tale most of us grew up on and consider one of the best films ever made. After the jump, there are five more pictures from the film for you to set your eyes on. Oz looks like a shoo-in for a few tech nominees in 2013, including Visual Effects, Art Direction, Costume Design, and Makeup, to name a few. But we’ll have to wait until March 8th, 2013, when the film is released in theatres to find out what else might be in store for us.

Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
