Following close on the heels of the one sheet for Oz the Great and Powerful comes the first trailer, which debuted at Comic-Con.
I have to admit, I’m not sold on the look of this thing. There’s just so much CGI, and a lot of it looks pretty bad. (The shot of him falling looks like it came from an el cheapo SyFy Channel TV movie.) And there’s a lot of obvious gimmicky nonsense for 3D, with all kinds of crap flying toward the camera. Ugh.
But still, I like Raimi, so I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt. I think James Franco looks pretty great as the wizard, and the final shot, at least, is chilling and spectacular.
