New posters for 'Oz the Great and Powerful', 'Mud', and 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'


Disney has revealed a cool new motion poster for Oz the Great and Powerful, showing the Wicked Witch of the East surrounded by a devastating tornado. I wonder if they have stormchasers in the land of Oz? Probably not. Arriving on March 8th, the imagined prequel to The Wizard of Oz follows ethically challenged magician Oscar Diggs(James Franco) who is whisked away to the magical kingdom where he must convince three witches: Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams) that he's a powerful wizard.


One of the films I'm most upset over missing at Sundance was Jeff Nichols' Mud, which features what many are calling a tour de force performance by Matthew McConaughey. He's been on fire for the last couple of years, mostly by playing characters who are either morally bankrupt or ethically dubious. The new poster for Mud puts him front and center and packing heat, playing an escaped prisoner hiding out in the woods, who seeks the help of two young boys in reuniting with his long lost love, Juniper. Co-starring Reese Witherspoon, Tye Sherdian, and Sam Shepard, look for the film to open on April 26th.



Do you have what it takes? COBRA really wants to know. Two cool new posters for G.I. Joe: Retaliation take on the form of military recruitment ads, questioning your manhood and such. If you don't join, you're not a man. After a lengthy delay, the sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra arrives on March 29th and stars Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, and Adrienne Palicki.
