We had a blurry cam shot of a promotional poster of James Franco in Oz The Great and Powerful that gave us a decent look at Franco but now we have something a bit more “official” that requires less squinting of the eyes. The good news is Franco looks exactly as we thought/hoped he would. The better news is we also have our first looks of Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, AND Mila Kunis.
I like the imagery. The heavy use of CGI is a turn off for some but I don’t think CGI is dangerous in the hands of someone who can be trusted with the stuff. This may be the first Raimi film that’s so heavily reliant on the technology so this will be a test of sorts to let us know whether or not he can be trusted moving forward.
I also still wonder what this film could have been like if Robert Downey Jr. hadn’t dropped out of the role. Franco is a fine talent but I doubt that there’s any argument that RDJ would/could have taken the role places that Franco won’t touch.
Michelle Williams looks absolutely regal. Weisz and Kunis look hot and I wonder if they released this photo just to suggest sexual tension intentionally. Nice to finally see everyone together and I’ll be looking forward to seeing more. That’s all for now…
