Big Eyes Trailer

"You don't even know what the truth is!" Finally! The first trailer for the latest Tim Burton film has debuted, but this may not be what you're expecting. Burton's Big Eyes stars Amy Adams as artist Margaret Keane, who painted the "big eyes" portraits that became popular in the 1950s and 60s. Her husband, Walter Keane played by Christoph Waltz, eventually claimed credit for her paintings. Burton's take on the story is much more realistic and straightforward than we most may be expecting, but that's not to say it doesn't look fantastic. Adams especially, my goodness is she always a powerhouse. Looking forward to seeing how this alters the Oscar game. From the looks of it, Adams may be the one to beat. Take a look at Big Eyes below.

Here's the first official trailer for Tim Burton's Big Eyes, originally from Yahoo:

A drama centered on the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane (Adams), her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband, who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s. Big Eyes is directed by the one-and-only filmmaker Tim Burton, director of films including Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Mars Attacks, Big Fish, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows, and Frankenweenie. The script is written by Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski (both of Ed Wood, Man on the Moon, Screwed, Agent Cody Banks, 1408). The Weinstein Company has Burton's Big Eyes set for release on December 25th, 2014 later this year.

    nice plot and cast but the trailer reveals too much.
    • How can you say that without having seen the film? Just curious. It shows quite a bit, but I don't know if I can say too much because I don't know how much else/what else the film shows yet.

        I really like the story, yet I think the trailer should been shorter. For example I think the line: "why are you lying?" could been a good end for the trailer. I always thought that trailers shouldn't exceed 1:30 or 1:45 maximum. Yesterday I saw the the trailer for "most violent year" and I thought wow what a brilliant trailer. and it's 1:21 long, but this is just me.
    • Probably intentional, considering it's based on a true story and can easily be accessed online. Otherwise, I don't think it shows as much as you believe. There's 10 years of fraud on the part of Walter Keane, and that certainly can't be covered in a 2 1/2 minute trailer.

    Wow this looks like a totally departure for Tim Burton from his usual films he does today. Am really interested in seeing this.

      I don't know, I think this is right down his alley... Just changing some details, but still, that's old him. This time, it's not in the movie, it's in the paintings...
  • DAVIDPD
    Tmmy B. Still got the moves!!! Amy Adams and Waltz look like they will be in top form. Can't wait.
  • Bloost
    And to think Reese Witherspoon almost had this role to ruin.
  • Terry Craig
    Looks very promising. Good for Burton to finally try something new for him. Hopefully the film will focus on the intrigue and the drama between Adams/Waltz's characters instead of the value of the paintings and the whole ain't-the-art-world-silly shtick.
  • IamSlave
    Good lord, is there anything Amy Adams can't be good in?
  • shiboleth
    I can't miss Amy Adams, just can't...
  • Jamie Holmes
    ZZzzzzZZZzz...

    How does the bargain bin version of Neil Gaimen keep finding work?
