The full trailer for Sam Raimi's 'Oz The Great and Powerful' will reportedly drop in just a couple days, so we've floated in a handful of new stills from the film to get you warmed up. So, what's knew that we haven't already seen? You'll get fresh looks at Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis -- as the prequel's trio of witches -- as well as a cute monkey, because every movie needs one.
'Oz: The Great and Powerful' is one of the most anticipated movies of 2013. Where 'The Wizard of Oz' introduced the movie-loving world to Dorothy, the book turned Broadway musical 'Wicked' centered on the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda, this new look at the Land of Oz gives us a look at the man we all know as the Wizard (whose real name apparently is Oscar Diggs). But that doesn't mean the other classic characters don't play a crucial part.
We've already got a look at the first official movie poster and the first teaser trailer, and now a new look at the latest re-imagining of one of the wickedest of witches has come forth in an artful movie poster form. But who exactly are we looking?
Terrence Malick's editing process is such that Adrien Brody went from being the lead in 'The Thin Red Line' to barely making an appearance in the film. Not to mention performances by Bill Pullman, Mickey Rourke, or Billy Bob Thorton's voiceover work, all of which were scrapped from the film. 'To the Wonder,' his latest film, may have left Rachel Weisz on the cutting room floor.
The integer 360 represents the number of degrees in a perfect circle, but it also marks the amount of times you'll turn to the person next to you and say "oh, you've got to be kidding me!" as you watch Fernando Merielles' film of the same name.
This latest entry into the "we're all connected" subgenre fails on its most basic level - only a handful of the characters actually are connected and even fewer of them experience any change at the conclusion of the film. Merielles' motive may have been to show how our actions effect the world around us, but his methods are to film a whole bunch of micro scenes with as many actors as possible and hope that something he slaps against the screen sticks.
Now that Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ has reached theaters, we’re starting to look past the year’s most-anticipated film and prepare for the next blockbuster. Ah, summer. There’s always a potential crowd-pleaser on the horizon, and the next one on our radar happens to be ‘The Bourne Legacy.’
No, this isn't a film in which Samuel L. Jackson poignantly understands unrequited love perceived as female psychosis via the metaphor of a shark. This is Terence Davies' 'The Deep Blue Sea,' starring Rachel Weisz as Hester, a woman with a name that, too obviously, serves as a thinly-veiled allusion to 'The Scarlet Letter.'
