Mario’s Weekend Movie Roundup [VIDEO]

new movies 03/08/2013

This weekend could be the biggest at the box office as the much hyped ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ comes to theaters nationwide. With spring break starting to get underway it seems only fitting that movie producer Sam Raimi (‘Amazing Spider Man’) would release this fantasy tale derived from the iconic classic ‘The Wizard of Oz.’  The upcoming ‘Man of Steel’ seems to get all the attention regarding studios’ attempt to “reboot” franchises, but If ‘Oz’  succeeds at the box office, we may end up with a new version of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ at some point, even though the producers have said that’s not their goal. By the way, Disney studios has already started prepping on a sequel that could be released as early as 2015. All I know is my wife has had this movie circled ever since Disney announced it would be making the movie. She is a huge ‘Wizard of Oz’ fan and can’t wait to see it. So guess what?  I’ll see you at the movies!

Also opening this week is a dark tale of blackmail and revenge.

‘Oz the Great and Powerful’
