With just a couple of months to go until the March 8th release of Sam Rami‘s Oz: The Great And Powerful, the marketing machine for the film is about to go into overdrive. The first of many television spots for the movie to come is below the movie’s synopsis.
A mischievous magician gains the wisdom to become a powerful ruler after being swept away to a land of magic and mystery as director Sam Raimi and screenwriters Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole) explore the genesis of author L. Frank Baum’s enduring tales of Oz. Shady illusionist Oscar Diggs (James Franco) enchants curious audiences at a Kansas circus. Inexplicably transported to the wondrous world of Oz, he encounters three witches named Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams) who pose him with an awesome challenge: root out a ruinous force of evil that threatens to destroy the entire kingdom, and become the great leader that the population has been waiting for. Should Oscar succeed in summoning the sorcery and creativity to deliver the land from darkness, he will forever be known as the Wizard of Oz.
