Calling Comic-Con International in San Diego his "home away from home," director Sam Raimi brought a new trailer for his "Oz: The Great and Powerful" to the cavernous Hall H on Thursday afternoon, and the new footage impressed the thousands on hand at the San Diego Convention Center.
A backstory about how the Wizard of Oz arrived in the city, the Disney film stars James Franco (who replaced Robert Downey Jr.), Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Abigail Spencer, the last three of whom play witches. "I don't want to be a good man," Franco says in the trailer. "I want to be a great one." A tornado soon increases the chances for his wish becoming true.
