A third character poster has been released for Sam Raimi's (Spider-Man) Wizard Of Oz prequel, featuring James Franco's Oscar Diggs. We also have an IMAX exclusive poster for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, which hits theaters today.

Disney’s fantastical adventure Oz The Great and Powerful, directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora, Evanora and Glinda, who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

When small-time magician Oscar Diggs pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well.

Oz: The Great And Powerful stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams. The film is set to hit theaters March 8th. [Via Facebook]

Catching up with Hansel and Gretel, fifteen years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have grown into vengeful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. Over the years, the siblings became expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taking down their prey. Although still recovering from their ordeal, their work is relatively easy as for an unknown reason harmful spells and curses do not work well against them.

The Mayor of Augsburg recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of an evil sorceress who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches' gathering during the upcoming 'Blood Moon' night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters stars Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton and Famke Janssen. The film opens today in 3D and IMAX 3D. [Via IMP Awards]

If they went less "Van Crelsing/steam punk" with the execution of this, I'd be more onboard than I am. Late January? Famke(sure Brett, you want me to what?) Jensen and the fact that it just looks plain awful aren't enough. Hope I'm wrong.., but if not, I'd rather watch a fat or skinny Jonah Hill slay dragons for a few hours than this. :-P
