‘The Wizard of Oz’ gets the Michael Bay treatment in explosive mash-up trailer

by  in Movie News Comment

Did you ever wonder what it might be like if “Transformers” director Michael Bay helmed a classic film like “The Wizard of Oz?” Well, wonder no more!

Mashable has re-cut footage from the original 1939 film in the style of Bay’s blockbuster films. Complete with climactic music and lens flares, the mash-up trailer invites viewers to “Click your heels,” “Discover your courage” and “Follow your heart” over footage of the war between Dorothy, her friends and the Wicked Witch of the West. Oh, and there might be an explosion somewhere in there, too.

In addition to “Transformers,” Bay is known for other action-packed films like “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Armageddon” and “13 Hours” — which probably gives you an idea of what to expect in this reimagined “Wizard of Oz” trailer.
