Walt Disney Pictures has released the main poster image of director Sam Raimi's “Oz The Great and Powerful.”
The new artwork features the cast James Franco, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis front and center, and completes the triptych after previously released left (featuring the Wicked Witch) and right (Oz's magical creatures) panels.
"Oz The Great and Powerful” imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (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 (Kunis), Evanora (Weisz) and Glinda (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.
Distributed by Walt Disney Studios, “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in Philippine theaters on March 8, 2013.
