Press day for any entertainer is a total bore. You’re stuck in one room for a whole entire day where you must spend your time is answering the same three questions as shot out by journalists (trust us, we know the questions suck but we’re obligated ask). So of course we’re going to love it when a journalist and star both decide to go off the rails and have a normal conversation.
Enter Mila Kunis.
Just to set the record straight, Kunis was everyone’s imaginary BFF before Jennifer Lawrence hit it big with the Hunger Games. Kunis is a natural when it comes to interviews—befriending journalists, confessing that yes, people do shout “Shut up, Meg!” at her on the streets, and being on the ready when it comes to defending her friends whether it’s in english or Russian.
So yeah, she was total cool when BBC1′s Chris Stark just wanted to shoot the shit with her and eventually, tried to ask her out. For the record, she seemed like she total would’ve said yes if she wasn’t working.
WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW:
“Almost Home,” Mariah Carey’s newest song, has been released from the soundtrack of the “Oz Great an Powerful” soundtrack. This song is ideal to play over the credits of a feel good disney-esque movie. It makes me nostalgic, remembering her and Whitney Houston’s “When You Believe” from the Prince of Egypt soundtrack.
The music video of the song, to be directed by David LaChappelle, will include clips from the movie.
The song seems very appropriate for the film. It’s been a long time since a song like this has been attached to a new movie, for it is normally indie bands or top 40 artists who have lately recorded for movies. I’m thinking every soundtrack for every past Twilight movie that has had artists ranging from Taylor Swift to Paramore record songs. Thank you Mariah Carey for bringing back sweet ballads to disney films.
Oz The Great and Powerful,” starring James Franco, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz, will hit theatres on March 8. music
The trailer for Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful is, at times, so visually stunning that it look like it’s animated. Director Sam Raimi (Spider-Man) managed to re-envision the Land of Oz we all remember from 1939′s The Wizard of Oz while preserving the original vision and maintaining its integrity.
The plot centres around a small-time magician named Oscar Diggs (James Franco) who is hurled into the Land of Oz where he must transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard. The film also stars Mina Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff.
The Wizard of Oz was one of my fave movies as a kid so I love that they’re reinterpreting it for the next generation. You’ll have to wait nearly a year though because it’s not being released until March, 2013.

We announced that the Wizard of Oz prequel was in the works about a year ago. Oz The Great and Powerful is a Sam Raimi (Spiderman) directed story of how the wizard ruled the kingdom. But this week, some details about the film finally surfaced thanks to blabbering youngsters Abigail Spencer and Joey King.
“We’re doing the same thing as the first Wizard of Oz, we’re making it black and white in the beginning and then (it gets) colorful when we enter the Land of Oz,” she said in an interview with TeenSpot. “It’s also going to be a 3D movie; I’m so excited about that. It’s going to add a whole new level to the awesomeness of Oz.”
“It’s before the Scarecrow and the Tin Man and Dorothy and all that,” says Spencer who plays the Wizard’s assistant May in an interview with E! ”It really goes deeper into how that story came to be.
Rather than James Franco, Michelle Williams or Mila Kunis belting out ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ like the Judy Garland-starring original it is based more upon the books, according to Spencer.
“This is the real story and I think this is actually what the writer [L. Frank Baum] intended when he wrote them.”
Oz is set for release on March 8 of next year.
