‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ Releases a New Poster — Did Tim Burton Do This?
Just days after releasing the second poster, 'Oz the Great and Powerful' is proud to present their third official poster, and this one shows us what happens when Sam Raimi gets all hopped up on Red Bull after watching Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland.'
Yeah, it looks kind of like Tim Burton's vision board, doesn't it? The latest poster for Sam Raimi's 'Oz the Great and Powerful,' which debuted on Yahoo Movies, is a Photoshop-happy collage of a bunch of stuff from the world of Oz -- flying monkeys, a munchkin man, a hot air balloon and lots of colors!
What intrigues us most, however, is the inclusion of the fine China pieces. We already knew that Raimi was sticking closer to the original book series by L. Frank Baum, but seeing those China pieces makes us recall the China Country, a little area hidden in the forest in the Quadling Country of the Land of Oz. If you've not read the books, China Country is a beautiful land surrounded by a high wall of China (of course), where the people are fragile and prone to breaking, and never look as beautiful once they're mended. It's one of the things we're most excited about seeing in this big screen adaptation, so while this poster is pretty terrible, seeing the dainty China is kind of awesome.
'Oz the Great and Powerful' stars James Franco, Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams, and hits theaters March 8, 2013. Check out the full version of the new poster below.
