Click Chick: New Frankenweinie, Oz trailers debut at Comic Con

Yes, I should be at Comic Con. That's a mecca of any geek girl. But I have my sources there and I got my hands on the new Frankenweenie "Homage" trailer. Why is a called that? Well, it's Tim Burton's clever nod to classic horror film trailers.

My sources also sent me the trailer to upcoming "Oz the Great and Powerful." It is a reimagining of the origins of "The Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum classic. "Oz the Great and Powerful" stars James Franco, Michelle Williams, Evanora and Rachel Weisz who play witches. It'll be easy to figure out which witch Glinda is. It's directed by Sam Raimi - and I must say the trailer alone is a visual delight...

Opening this weekend: "Ice Age: Continental Drift" which is the fourth film in the Ice Age franchise. According to Rotten Tomatoes, critics haven't been exactly kind. The Phoenix Film Critics Society pick of the week is "Beasts of the Southern Wild." It's the tale of Hushpuppy (Quvenzhane Wallis), a little girl who is being taught to survive by her dying father (Dwight Henry) in a federally-condemned area of the hurricane-ravaged southern Delta. It is lyrical, emotional and rises on the strength of performances of the father-daughter duo. If you like affecting art films, this is definitely one you should check out. So far, I think its going to make my Top 10 list at the end of the year.
