Two Weeks Until 'Oz the Great and Powerful'!


Can you believe that there are only two weeks left until we get to see Oz the Great and Powerful? Pretty awesome. As expected, all of the news bits this week are related to that movie.

First, I wanted to let everyone know, that I will not be seeing the movie when it opens on Friday, March 8th... because I'll be seeing it the night before! Yes, many theaters (in the U.S., at least) will be offering advanced screenings of the film on the night of Thursday, March 7th. You can check if a theater near you will be showing the film on March 7th right here.

We have a bunch of new international Oz TV spots, clips, and promos...
On Sunday, the cast of Oz introduced a brand new TV spot with some nice, new footage during ABC's Revenge.You can watch that spot by clicking the 'Nothing is What it Seems' link above.

This week, a new clip from the film was released online via Yahoo! Movies. Some of this scene was shown when Rachel Weisz was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week. You can watch the new clip here.

Earlier this week, Prince Michael Jackson, son of the King of Pop, interviewed the cast of the movie on Entertainment Tonight. They didn't show any footage from the movie, and the interview clips were pretty short.

Last night, star Mila Kunis was a guest on Conan O'Brien's talk show on TBS to talk about the movie. A new clip from the movie was aired. You can watch the entire interview and the new clip here.

Mariah Carey's Almost Home, which plays during the credits of the movie, has been officially released online. I'm not really impressed by it, but if you want to give it a listen for a dollar, you can do so right here. Disney has been removing YouTube uploads of the song, so I won't link to any here since there's a risk of them getting deleted...

Speaking of music from the film, you can listen to snippets from Danny Elfman's score right here.

Disney Channel has been airing a new behind-the-scenes look at the film with Mila Kunis, which you can watch here. Lots of cool clips and set footage here.

A 4D sneak preview of the movie is now being shown at the Muppet*Vision Theater at Disney's California Adventure theme park...
