Wicked Witch Of The West Is Front And Center In New Oz The Great And Powerful Poster
It felt like it took forever for Sam Raimi's Oz The Great and Powerful to get from pre-production to completion - it started production in July 2011 - but we are finally closing in on the release date. We've already seen a couple of trailers, a number of stills and even a fun triptych poster, but now it's time for what looks like a series of character one-sheets.
Walt Disney Studios has released a new bit of advertising art for the upcoming fantasy film, and rather than having the titular hero take center stage it's instead the dastardly Wicked Witch of the West. You can see the poster below and click to see it in its highest resolution over in our database.
The question is: who is the actress under all that makeup? Obviously it's not Michelle Williams, who is playing Glinda (a.k.a. The Good Witch), but is it Mila Kunis or Rachel Weisz? The prosthetics do a great job of hiding her identity, and hopefully it remains a mystery until the movie is released.
A prequel of sorts to L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz, the new movie follows a magician named Oscar who dreams greatness and glory. While traveling by balloon after being chased out of town he discovers that he has somehow flown into the land of Oz, where he manages to convince everyone that he is a great wizard - everyone, that is, except for Glinda, Theodora and Evanora, a trio of witch sisters. The outstanding cast includes James Franco as Oz, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis, Zach Braff, Joey King and Tony Cox. Oz The Great And Powerful hits theaters March 8, 2013 and you can head over to our Blend Film Database for video, stills, powers, news and more.
