'Big Eyes' Movie Release Date 2014 Starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz Directed by Tim Burton, Watch New Trailer Here (VIDEO)
The upcoming biographical drama movie Big Eyes directed by Tim Burton has released their new extended trailer, which you can check out above.
The film stars Amy Adams as Margaret Keane and Christoph Waltz as Walter Keane and is scheduled to hit theaters on Christmas Day, December 25.
Plot: Walter Keane became a national celebrity and talk show fixture in the 1950s after he pioneered the mass production of prints of big-eyed kids, and used his marketing savvy to sell them cheaply in hardware stores and gas stations across the country. Unfortunately, he claimed to be the artist. That role was played by Margaret, his shy wife. She generated the paintings from their basement and Walter's contribution was adding his signature to the bottom. The ruse broke up their marriage, and when she tried to make it known that she authored the paintings, they ended up in a court battle after Walter called her crazy. The case culminated in a dramatic courtroom showdown. The judge put up two easels, side by side, and challenged each of them to start painting. He begged off, blaming a shoulder injury, while she dashed off her familiar big-eyed creation.
Amy Adams is already being talked about as a frontrunner for an Oscar nomination this year for Big Eyes. She has been nominated five times but never taken home the trophy yet.
The film is produced by Burton, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Lynette Howell. The script was written by Alexander and Karaszewski and presented by The Weinstein Company.
Big Eyes was originally supposed to be directed by Alexander and Karaszewski and produced by Burton. It had Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Reynolds as its leads. However, Burton took over and Alexander and Karaszewski became its scriptwriters with Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz replacing the roles of Witherspoon and Reynolds.
