Trailer Tuesday: Oz the Great and Powerful

Sam Raimi, probably best known as the director of the Spider-Man trilogy, last directed a film called Drag Me to Hell. It gained quite the cult following, but didn't really live up to expectations at the box office considering how big a name Raimi has become. Check out the trailer for his new film above.

Oz: The Great and Powerful is sure to garner a much larger audience. Why? First of all, it's adapted from one of the most beloved novels of all time - L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - and it stars some of the biggest names in entertainment today. Francophilia continues as James Franco stars as Oscar Diggs (or, Oz - we hope that doesn't give too much away...). Mila Kunis, one of the most sought after actresses working today stars at Theodora. Michelle Williams, most recently seen in Sarah Polley's Take This Waltz, is much more glamorous than Kevin O'Leary - somehow - as Glenda, while Rachel Weisz takes on the role of the third witch, Evanora.

It would seem that the world is Oz-obsessed. CBC's own Over the Rainbow will hit your TV screens come September, and it's going to be one of the hottest shows out there. Hosted by Daryn Jones, your votes will determine who will be Dorothy in Mirvish's Toronto production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Wizard of Oz musical. Here's Daryn with more on the show and what you have to look forward to as we joined him at his first CBC photo shoot:
