Called it. It seriously looks like the exact same movie.

Kinda disappointed with the tone of the trailer (never saw 2010's Alice in Wonderland, but I'm getting the exact same impression).

I'm still interested though, given that The Wizard of Oz is one of my all-time favorites.

So they remade Alice in Wonderland... with a Tornado instead of a Rabbit Hole.

BRILLIANT! 80mm $ opening weekend secured!

That looks pretty bad, but I bet it makes a killing at the box office.

I thought it was a pretty good first-trailer. It doesn't give much away about the direction of the film (besides the obvious) and it appears as though the film is going to be visually inventive (as per usual, given that this is a Sam Raimi film).

Oz is supposed to be from Omaha, Nebraska in Baum's original novel.

Teaser was too short to draw any conclusions. The last movie with Franco and a bunch of monkeys turned out okay.

So can we say the Evil Dead trilogy was a fluke now?

Yeah, same with me. I don't think it'll be a great film, but it could turn out pretty good. The b/w opening certainly is more creative than I was expecting.

Really, have you seen Alice in Wonderland? This looks exactly the same as that piece of trash.

I can agree that the look of the film reminds me of Alice but I like the actors in Oz (Franco, Weisz) much better than anyone in AiW. Not ready to dismiss it.

Looks better than Alice to me, looks like a more fun Imagnarium of Dr. Parnassus.

Zach Braff was in that trailer for .1 second, throwing Franco his hat.

He's also in there for another .1 sec at the beginning of the trailer.
Perhaps you blinked and missed that appearance.

The Wizard was kinda a goofball in the 1939 movie and in the trailer he doesn't act that way.

I don't think they have the rights to the 1939 movie so this is sort-of a generic prequel to the Oz stories in general. Like Wicked.

Is that Godzilla at the 50 second mark on the right in the distance?

I always had the impression that the Wizard was the goofy magician guy Dorothy ran into just before the tornado and he getnere same as her but just earlier.

THE WIZARD OF OZ was dream. Wasn't it?
That's what I got out of it when Dorothy wakes up.
What did the book say?

There's several books, no dream.

This movie has some bizarre casting decisions. On the other hand, the only thing that really interests me about it is the inclusion of Rachel Weisz.
