Now this is one badass looking Wicked Witch! Sam Raimi sure knows how to bring out the terrifying elements of a witch. I love the nightmarishly awesome look shown in this character poster for OZ The Great and Powerful. This is the best look we've seen of this character so far. The more I see of this movie the more excited I get. It looks like Raimi is doing some incredible stuff with this film, and I'm looking forward to seeing it on the big screen. I've heard a lot of people compare it to Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, but I think this looks like it's going to be a hell of a lot better.
Oz: The Great And Powerful is set to hit theaters March 8th, 2013.
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
