Watch The ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ Opening Title Sequence

Director Sam Raimi pays homage to the original black and white opening of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ in his new fantasy adventure.

In case you're one of the few who hasn't seen Oz: The Great and Powerful, which currently reigns as the number one movie in America for the past two weeks in a row, the studio has now released the opening title sequence of director Sam Raimi's magical adventure. While the movie itself makes the best use of today's cutting edge technology, this animated opening is a black-and-white throwback to a simpler era of moviemaking, with a direct nod to the opening moments of the original 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz.

Oz: The Great and Powerful was released March 8th, 2013 and stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff, Bill Cobbs, Joey King, Tony Cox. The film is directed by Sam Raimi.

    I saw this last week and found it to be very creative. Similar to Spider-Man with it's webs and whatnot. For some reason nearly every Sam Rami movie the opening credits are like 5 minutes long. lol
