UPDATE: The winners of the “Oz” glasses are: Jennifer, Belle, Nick, Efran, Dan M, Michael, Tim, Sherri, Surge and Craig. Thanks to everyone who participated and keep watching for more contests.

I have been able to get my hands on ten (10) pairs of the Real 3D glasses that were produced to be used only for promotions connected with the release of “Oz the Great and Powerful.” The glasses are not intended to be sold to the public. If you see the movie in 3D, the glasses you get at the theater are just plain black.

But, you can win a special pair. There’s no need to go down the Yellow Brick Road. Just send me your brief comments about the new movie — that opens today — no later than March 15.

Ten winners will be randomly selected to win the glasses. You will have to pick them up during regular business hours at the Fresno Bee. They will not be mailed.

Good luck.

Here are the official rules:

Only readers who submit a comment on this post are eligible. Winners will be picked at random. Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use.

By accepting a giveaway, recipient consents to allow the use of his/her name and/or photograph for advertising or similar promotions without further compensation. Winner releases all sponsors of liability regarding use and enjoyment of the prizes. Tax liabilities and insurance, if any, are sole responsibility of the winner. No purchase necessary to win.

Craig Miller says:

If I win those glasses, not only will I wear them to the movie but also at my morning coffee visits to the Revue. I am an “old school” gay…..they belong to me. :)

Kristy says:

Those are awesome!

Sareen says:

I think the movie was majestic and vibrant. Great acting by the three witches but I think Franco’s performance needed some fine-tuning. Joey King and Zach Braff stole the show!

Beth says:

I am looking forward to seeing the new Oz movie. I just hope there are no flying monkeys in this movie. The flying monkeys from the original gave me nitemares, when I was little.
I think I would look super cool wearing this awesome Oz glasses!

Eric W says:

My wife has been looking forward to this movie since the first teaser, I would love to win these for her.

Denise says:

I’m afraid of the flying monkeys. A pair of these special glasses will lessen the fear, I’m sure.

Will says:

I feel like this movie has great potential for an interesting story, but James Franco is so hit and miss that he could really let this film fail flat on its face. The women are of the cast are all fantastic actresses and with Disney’s high budget live-action works, I am going to give it a try and hope for the best. I am just hoping it’s more than a pretty picture.

Mike Oz says:

I am a huge Mila Kunis and James Franco fan and I am obsessed with the Wizard of Oz and this Movie looks amazing! Having these would be an honor!

Sherri Martin says:

So our family, primarily due to our daughter Rebecca, are huge Oz fans. We have watched the Wizard of Oz hundreds of times. Our favorite story is when Bekah was smaller she kept telling her brother he was a “lopsided bag if hay”. We didn’t know what that meant – until the movie was playing – again- in the background and u heard the witch call the scarecrow that.

Robert says:

I really don’t like those glasses, they should be green, as in the book.

Janet says:

Just saw the movie and it was great!!!! 3-D changes everything!!!! Need these glasses so I can look cool when I go back and watch it again!

Love those glasses. It was hard watching the movie after being a big fan of Wicked since the two contradict each other.

Saw the movie in Real 3D. Absolutely loved it! Would love to use these glasses when I go see it again.
