'Oz: The Great and Powerful' Trailer: James Franco and His Hat Enter the World of Widescreen 3D CGI Stuff


Well, looks like Sam Raimi has his Alice in Wonderland.

Though you won't see any singing little people in this teaser, you do get a chance to ogle the film's three witches: Mila Kunis's Carmen Sandiego, Rachel Weisz as Legend's Mia Sara (evil version), and Michelle Williams as sexy Masters of the Universe fantasy indulgence. Plus, some monkeys and a hat fly right at the screen! Three Dee!

I predict this will make some money.
