Yesterday, I headed to Claridge’s for the Press Conference for Oz The Great And Powerful for The Hollywood News. Aside from hearing about the film, it confirmed two things – that Zach Braff is hilarious and Rachel Weisz may be the most beautiful person I have ever laid my eyes on. I live blogged the whole thing with some short and sweet Twitter soundbites and you can read it all back here. Oh, and here’s a few of the photos I took. I spoil you, I know.

DIRECTOR: Will Gluck.
CAST: Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Patricia Clarkson, Jenna Elfman, Richard Jenkins, Woody Harrelson, Bryan Greenberg, Nolan Gould, Shaun White, Andy Samberg, Emma Stone.

The relationship soon becomes physical and they are left answering that eternal question – can bed buddies be best buddies?

It may not be superior to the Emma Stone-starrer, but it sure as hell tries its hardest and for the most part this pays off.
