Nearly 75 years after Judy Garland first clicked those ruby red slippers, the prequel (sort of) to The Wizard of Oz, Oz the Great and Powerful, was a massive hit in its opening weekend.
Worldwide, Oz made an impressive $150.2 million, bringing in $80.3 million in the U.S. alone.
Starring James Franco as “the wizard”, the film chronicles the journey of how the small-time magician arrives in an enchanted land and is forced to decide if he will be a good man or a great one.
The film also stars Mila Kunis, Michelle Wiliiams, Rachel Weisz and Zach Braff. It was directed by Sam Raimi, the man behind the Spiderman trilogy.
