New in Theaters: “Oz the Great and Powerful” and Colin Farrell’s Revenge Flick “Dead Man Down”

The first big release this weekend is the movie that has a ton of stars including Mila Kunis, so yeah I’m interested.

It’s Oz The Great and Powerful

It’s a prequel to the 1939 classic “The Wizard of Oz”, about a small town illusionist who’s sucked into a tornado and transported to Oz, where he manages to convince everyone he’s a powerful wizard.

James Franco plays the wizard, Michelle Williams is Glinda the Good Witch, and the other two witches are played by MilaKunis and Rachel Weisz.   It’s directed by “Spider-Man” director Sam Raimi.

The Kansas scenes are all in black and white, just like in the original movie, and everything switches to color once he lands in Oz.  And of course, what Oz movie would be complete without flying monkeys and a green-skinned wicked witch.

I’ve liked James Franco since 127 Hours…I’ll give this one a shot.

The other big one released this weekend is Dead Man Down.

Noomi Rapace from “Prometheus” and the original Swedish version of“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” blackmails Colin Farrell after she witnesses him killing a guy.

But it turns out they both want revenge against Terrence Howard, who scarred up her face and killed Farrell’s family.  It’s directed by the guy who did the Swedish “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.

Which movie will you see this weekend? Maybe just stay inside and watch some Suddenlink Tivo…I’ve got a new episode of Nashville I haven’t seen.
