Trailer: Sam Raimi returns with ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’

The poster and trailer for Oz the Great and Powerful proudly trumpet Sam Raimi as the “visionary director of the Spider-Man trilogy.” Seems like odd timing for that bit of cross-promotion, no? In any case, The trailer showcases a bit of Wizard of Oz-aping visual shifting, moving from black-and-white and 1.33:1 to widescreen and full color, possibly indicating that it’ll be closer in tone to the original film as opposed to, say, the freakishly dark Return to Oz. James Franco stars, along with the attention-grabbing trio of Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz.
