This new trailer gives a more in depth look at the characters and plot of the film and it has still left me unsure. We know James Franco's is a Wizard who wants to do great things, and finds the chance to do so when he gets tornado swirled into the land of Oz. However, is he really the savior or a big ol' con man?
Visually it looks bright and vivid and ethereal, but also looks as if it is going in to Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland territory. I'm not sure why filmmakers have taken to resting the laurels of a film on the look and not the story. This trailer makes the story feel convoluted and I wish they would just remember that The Wizard of Oz was great because the characters and incredible story and work with that.
