Opening this weekend is Disney and director Sam Raimi’s fantastic prequel to The Wizard of OzOz The Great and Powerful.  The film centers on a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics (James Franco) who finds himself transported to Oz and drawn into a battle between the three witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams).  Loaded with incredible visuals, amazing 3D, and a beautiful world created by production designer Robert Stromberg (Alice in Wonderland, Avatar), Oz is the type of movie that definitely should be seen on a movie screen and it’s absolutely worth the extra charge to see it in 3D.  Oz The Great and Powerful also stars Zach Braff and Joey King.

Recently, I got to speak with Weisz.  We talked about what it was like to walk on the yellow brick road for the first time, her reaction to the finished film, 3D, collaborating with Sam Raimi, and not doing David Cronenberg’s next movie, Maps to the Stars.  Hit the jump to watch.

If you missed my video interviews with Mila Kunis, James Franco, or Zach Braff, click the links.  And here is Matt’s review of Oz The Great and Powerful.
