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!
