Meet Oz: The Great and Powerful
Sam Raimi has been hard at work with a new venture into the world of Oz with James Franco. Along with Comic-Con comes great trailer premieres, including this one. Check it out:
I love Raimi’s decision to not only do the opening scenes in Kansas in black and white, but also in the 4:3 aspect ratio which matches the time period. The small touches of the flame escaping those boundaries will add to the 3D experience for this film, but whether that can be maintained in the color widescreen world of Oz is questionable. The story looks interesting as we get a glimpse of the various witches of Oz. I am definitely looking forward to this one.
