Oz is coming to the Super Bowl.
Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful — starring the enviably attractive medley of James Franco and Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams as three witches – is offering up a tiny online morsel sneak peek of a commercial that will show during the telecast of this Sunday’s Super Bowl game. The movie hits theaters March 8.
Check out the quick video, below, showing Franco as circus magician Oscar Diggs in a hot air balloon sucked from black-and-white hued Kansas into the vibrantly colorful Land of Oz, screaming all the way. “Am I dreaming?” he says. “You’re in Oz,” responds Kunis as witch Theodora, her long hair glistening over one eye like a ’40s glamor queen.

Oh, the sheer mystery of it all.
Check out this new poster from Disney for Oz the Great and Powerful, out in theaters March 8, showing a green, hook-nosed, black hat-wearing witch with clawed fingernails and a sneer that screams “I’M EVIL.”
Is the Wicked Witch of the West back? Disney won’t confirm which witch the demonic looking lady is, whether Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz), or Glinda (Michelle Williams). All bets are on Weisz, but director Sam Raimi always has some tricks up his sleeve, so we’ll just have to see…

The pieces to the puzzle that is Sam Raimi’s Oz, The Great and Powerful were just coming together, to be solidified and clarified with today’s new revealing trailer. And then this: a tantalizing splendor of new images and sequences that tease more of the plot but throw a monkey-wrench into the whole which-witch debate. James Franco’s Kansas magician is more like Dorothy than we ever knew: a mystical twister transports him to a strange land, where he encounters a witch (or three) and has to kill a Wicked one if he wants to acquire what he most desires.

Witches, witches, everywhere — but which one of them is wicked? We don’t get the answer in this new, longer trailer for Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful — but the clip does formally introduce us to Mila Kunis’s good witch Theodora, Rachel Weisz’s vampy witch Evanora, and Michelle Williams’s clearly virtuous Glinda.
All three magical ladies are pleased as punch when James Franco’s “Wizard” is dropped into Oz by a mighty tornado; he’s destined to fulfill a prophecy by defeating that still unidentified wicked sorceress. L. Frank Baum geeks will also be pleased to get a better look at the Wizard’s new Ozian sidekicks — Finley, a kind flying monkey (voiced by Zack Braff), and a girl made of porcelain (voiced by Ramona and Beezus‘s Joey King) who’s probably a native of Oz’s Dainty China Country — as well as Munchkins and the Yellow Brick Road. Go off and see the wizard for yourself:
The three-piece puzzle that is the banner poster for Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful has been completed, but don’t expect your most essential questions to be answered. Notably, which old witch is the Wicked Witch of the West? Internet opinion was mixed when the first panel of the poster revealed a green-faced, crow-nosed bombshell striding through some haunted woods. Was it Mila Kunis? Or Rachel Weisz?
The newest reveal is not immediately helpful, as both Kunis and Weisz appear with James Franco’s wizard-to-be as he and Michelle Williams’ good-witch look skyward at some approaching danger — Twister? Monkeys? A broom-rocketed sky-writer? — while Emerald City looms in the background. Kunis wears Kate Winslet’s embarkment hat from Titanic and Weisz is dressed like a Boardwalk Empire dame, so the mystery remains. (Though Kunis’ character does wear similar boots to the Wicked Witch…)

It’s not easy being green. Especially if you’re a witch in the land of Oz. In the first of three complementary panel posters for Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful, Mila Kunis — or is it Rachel Weisz? — looks much more seductive than Margaret Hamilton ever did in the 1939 classic, what with a sexy, tight-fitting black leather number.
In the trailer for the film, Kunis’ naive Theodora was sweet, perfectly flesh-toned, and dressed like a British royal, while Weisz’s more worldly Evanora seemed more partial to this witch’s black wardrobe. This witch marches left to right, from the West, but which actress rules that realm? The loser gets a house dropped on her head.

Just how big of a hit was Ted?
Well, short answer… huuuuuuuuuuuge.
Since opening in late June, the $50 million-budgeted R-rated comedy has grossed more than $450 million worldwide. Its onscreen leading man has proven he’s not only a “tough guy,” but a deft comic who can scrap with either Will Ferrell — in 2010’s The Other Guys — or a foul-mouthed teddy bear. And its offscreen leading man, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, is hosting the Oscars. So, long answer to, “How big of a hit was Ted?: Friggin’ huuuuuuuuuuuge.
But before the inevitable sequel, before the Oscars… heck before the season finale of The Cleveland Show, Ted is coming to Blu-ray and DVD. Universal officially announced today that the year’s No. 1 comedy will be released on Dec. 11 (with the rare extended unrated version that might actually deliver the naughty.)

Sam Raimi, director of Oz: The Great and Powerful, dropped by EW’s Comic-Con suite this afternoon with two of his witches, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams.

He’s a con artist who gets swept away to that magical land and crosses paths with three witches: good Glinda (Michelle Williams), naïve Theodora (Mila Kunis) and more dubious Evanora (Rachel Weisz.)
The Panel: Director Sam Raimi, Kunis and Williams. The Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick moderated.
The Big Revelations: We see Glinda, Theodora, and Evanora in the normal hues of the actresses — but the final shot is of a bright green claw scratching lines in a table top.
Somebody goes green — and once you go green, you apparently go mean.
