I’m pretty sure I’m down for this movie. I’ve been hesitant, but I really dig the new trailer. While I don’t actually love the aesthetic, it’s vivid and dazzling and will look wonderful in 3D, not that muddled garbage we saw in Alice in Wonderland. I’m a big fan of Sam Raimi’s goofy sense of humor, and all of the actors seem to be having a great time here.
I never know what to think about James Franco – that guy is such a weird mystery to me – but he has a naturally self-pleased, humbug air about him that will serve him well as Oscar Diggs, the young Wizard of Oz. And he’s in turns manipulated and assisted by three of the loveliest and most talented witches possible, with Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis turning in performances as Glinda, Evanora and Theodora, respectively.
Also, Zach Braff plays a flying monkey.
