Oz The Great and Powerful Synopsis

Disney’s fantastical adventure Oz The Great and Powerful, directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James 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 (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle 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 wizard but into a better man as well.

Going into this weekend there was no real doubt that any of the new releases would be able to unseat Oz The Great And Powerful, the mammoth Disney release still making tons of money all over the globe. What's surprised everyone, though, is which movie came in second place. Besting the splashy studio comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, the Halle Berry-led thriller The Call made $6.2 million on Friday, good enough for a (distant) second place behind Oz

Many who saw Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful this past weekend would likely agree that one of the best parts of the film is Zach Braff’s turn as the flying monkey Finley. Playing James Franco’s CGI sidekick, the actor is responsible for nearly all of the film’s best lines and works great with the film’s titular lead.

Oz the Great and Powerful is a certified hit, having made $80 million in the United States this weekend plus another $70 million across the world. Of course, Disney knew they had a hit on their hands before the movie even opened, setting up plans for a sequel, with writer Mitchell Kapner returning for the duties. But will Kapner be handing his script in to Sam Raimi again?

Criticizing the state's government spending, writer Jarrett Skorup reports $39.7 million was awarded to the production of Walt Disney's Oz: The Great and Powerful to shoot within the state. He says this means every taxpayer in Michigan chipped in essentially $8.82 toward the film, more than the average ticket price to see a movie in this country. The problem is, Skorup is not presenting these as fun facts, but as evidence that the government is spending their tax money poorly.

If you hated Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland the way we did, you might be cringing at the sight of another brightly colored fantasy world, filled with recognizable stars and action and everything perfectly calibrated to appeal to as many people as possible. But Oz is directed by the likable Sam Raimi, and stars the very likable Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz (plus James Franco, who's also there somehow)

Now Disney is back with Oz the Great and Powerful, which is kind of like a spiritual sequel to Alice-- a 3D movie set in a familiar fantasy world that seems to demand to be seen on the big screen. Given how far 3D technology has come in the last three years, Oz seems to be offering an even better experience than Alice, especially with the playful Sam Raimi-- who never misses an opportunity to make the audience jump in their seats-- behind the camera
