So, in just over a month "Oz The Great And Powerful" will wave a magic wand and drop into theaters, and mostly, Disney is hoping this doesn't "John Carter" on them. But they have a few things that will likely prevent that from happening. First, it's riffing on a beloved movie that everyone has heard of. Next, it features a cast that people know, including James Franco, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis. Okay, great. But then why on Earth did they airbrush the hell out of the one cast member who has been named the Sexiest Woman Alive?

With the big question around "Before Midnight" – will it stand alongside the beloved "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset"? – finally answered (it definitely does, read our review), the next question was where the movie was going to end up. It's a tricky one. The first two movies weren't exactly big box office smashes, each earning under $6 million domestically, and moreover, for anyone grabbing the movie, they wouldn't get any home video bump from the past movies as they are owned by Columbia ("Before Sunrise") and Warner Bros. ("Before Sunset"). But, those issues aside, the movie has landed at a big home.
