First Look: Sci Fi's Take on "Tin Man"

This winter, Sci Fi is putting a new spin on The Wizard of Oz. The network's six-hour miniseries, "Tin Man," is a dark reimagining of the classic story set in modern times. Zooey Deschanel plays DG, a girl with a fairly boring life who is suddenly thrust into a magical realm known as the O.Z., filled with odd creatures such as Glitch (Alan Cumming), who's missing half his brain, and Raw (Raoul Trujillo), a wolverine of sorts who longs for courage.

Pop and I got the scoop on "Tin Man" over the summer, but the trailer is finally online for all to see, and I have to say, it looks pretty cool. The special effects are spellbinding even on the tiny YouTube player, and Zooey seems like just the right choice for the shell-shocked DG. I'm planning to give it a look when it airs in December; what about you? To check out the trailer, just

i just don't think this looks good. the acting looks terrible for one. i'm into magic realism and all but this is just boring looking - very bad dialogue!

Zooey seems like the perfect actress for this type of role.

Well, The Wizard of Oz fan in me is torn. I hate remakes of it, but at least this seems original enough, so I'll probably check it out.

Does Zooey look thinner here? She looked a lot better before!

This looks really cool, but I HATE the way they refer to OZ as "The 'O' 'Z'"!!! That was a tad annoying and jarringly unnecessary!!
