It’s James Franco As The Young Wizard Of Oz

July 12, 2012 / Posted by:

This is what Disney got when they threw together $200 million, Sam Raimi James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff (???) and slightly more special effects than your average Mimi photo shoot. This is the trailer for the prequel of Wizard of Oz, Oz: The Great And Powerful and it comes out next year after the world has ended.

James Franco plays some kind of scheming magician who gets sucked into a tornado and travels to a land made of leftover CGI effects from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. James then meets the three witches: Mila Kunis, who looks like a cross between a bootleg Carmen Sandiego and a lost character from Clue,  Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams. Even in a damn children’s movie Michelle Williams looks sad, cold and on the verge of tears. Somebody get her a space blanket and a basket of kittens. Michelle plays Glinda, so shouldn’t she be like singing and blowing out bubbles and shit? Anyway, once James meets them, they somehow decide that he’s the first coming of God and is going to save Oz. It’s kind of like how James Franco thinks he, James Franco, is the first coming of God and is going to save us with his ART.

Also, am I the only one who wishes that Oz: The Great And Powerful was a movie about Christopher Meloni having non-stop butt sex in a prison shower?
