'Oz: The Great And Powerful' Trailer Gives Us An Origin Story, Mila Kunis

Really great, but only sorta powerful. This much-anticipated Sam Raimi film appears to be everything that we would like a Tim Burton film to be. It's got great effects that seem relevant to the story. It's got central characters that aren't played by Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. It's got a story, though somewhat familiar, that seems pretty damn crafty and fun. I don't want to get too gushy about a trailer, but Oz: The Great and Powerful looks as though it's oozing originality. And how could it not? It's got Franco!

Comic-Con 2012: 'Oz: The Great And Powerful' Trailer Lands

So that's where James Franco's been hiding. The Land of Oz. It's been awhile since we've heard much from James Franco and those worried that he would no longer appear in every single movie, can rest assured. He was just busy with Sam Raimi's new epic Oz: The Great and Powerful, which the director presented to a Comic-Con audience yesterday afternoon. The Wizard of Oz prequel takes a look at the humble beginnings of the Wizard before he found his way to Oz and leveled up. We're also given glimpses of Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz as hot witches. No sexy Munchkins yet though. Gotta save something for opening day crowds.


Kenny Powers > Poor, Underprivileged Children

Dr. Cock N Balls is back in the game. Eastbound & Down returns for its third and final season Sunday, February 19th on HBO. Last time we saw Kenny Powers, he was south of the border, searching for his estranged dad and another shot at the majors. Those efforts put him back on the map, so to speak, and now he's in Myrtle Beach pitching for the Mermen, which means Kenny Powers goes to Spring Break. Originally, the series was only planned to last one season, but I think we all can agree that Kenny at Spring Break is a story that needed to be told. This season, Danny McBride is joined by Jason Sudeikis, Steve Little, Katy Mixon and Ike Barinholtz.


The New 'Jonah Hex' Trailer is a Tired Rehash of the Original

Megan Fox (Left) speaks with Edward James Olmos (Right) between takes.If the latest installment of the Jonah Hex trailer series is any indication, Hollywood is officially out of ideas.The original trailer, which premiered last month, told the story of the upcoming Jonah Hex movie staring Josh Brolin as the titular cowboy bounty hunter who straddles the world of the living and the dead. The trailer also featured Megan Fox and John Malkovich, and was cheered by fans and critics alike for its non-stop action and witty dialogue.Although the new trailer features the entire original cast, the sequel squanders any good will earned by the first installment. It is nothing more than a tired rehash of its predecessor, devoid of any original ideas whatsoever. Brolin, Fox and Malkovich should be ashamed to be associated with this transparent marketing ploy which seems to have the singular purpose of selling movie tickets to eager fanboys.Watch the pathetic new Jonah Hex trailer after the jump.


Watch The Original '30 Rock' Pilot Starring Rachel Dratch As Jenna

Is like watching TV in an alternate dimension. Where they speak English. Beamed to us from the same alternate universe where Eric Stoltz played Marty McFly in BTTF, comes this original, unaired 30 Rock pilot starring Rachel Dratch in the role of Jenna, before she was replaced by Jane Krakowski. The decision to recast was made when NBC decided to scale back the in-show sketches and go with a more traditional sitcom actress. But Fey wanted to keep her buddy in the mix so decided to have Dratch play a different character in each episode which is a really fun idea like when Loo-Kee would hide in the background of She-Ra: Princess of Power episodes. Only difference is Loo-Kee didn't get totally f*cked by the execs at Filmation.

New Trailer For 'American Horror Story: Coven'

What are the odds that some of them are sexy? Rather than get those cryptic teasers that give us a clown crying, or a woman who may or may not have had a baby cut out of her, we get a little more clarity from this AHS trailer. In addition to sliding the setting over to New Orleans (because Anne Rice and True Blood were sorta on to something with that bayou vibe), we find out that the coven is a coven...OF WITCHES. Hmm. More intuitive fans may have pieced that together. The videos appear to play successively automatically, but in the event I somehow screwed that up, watch them over at the A.V. Club, but promise you'll come right back to our site after you do.


'Pitch Perfect' Meets 'The Wizard Of Oz'

Not as insufferable as it seems on paper. Todrick Hall teamed up with the group Pentatonix to create this ambitious retelling of The Wizard of Oz by using acapella mashups of popular songs from Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Motley Crue amongst others. As insufferable as that sounds as a pitch, it's actually really well-done and they spared no expense. They even rented a monkey. Let the countdown to Glee stealing their hard work and arrangements begin... now.
