I’d forgotten that Sam Raimi was directing this! That alone is enough to make me want to see it. This is the trailer that was screened for people at Disney’s Hall H panel at Comic-Con earlier today, and it looks a lot like Tim Burton’s miscarriage-inducing Alice in Wonderland. That’s by no means a bad thing, as Sam Raimi’s a far more capable filmmaker than Tin Burton is these days, and it’s not like Alice‘s problems were solely in the visual department.
All things considered, it’s looking pretty. It’s a short teaser, so there’s not that much on display, but it could be fun. I especially love how our Kansas is in both black and white and in 4:3, and the transition where the world of Oz goes color and the lens changes to widescreen is surprisingly effective!
