Entertainment Weekly has on its current issue a preview with all fall movies we’re looking after, and of course Big Eyes is featured on it. It has two new pictures of Amy and a small article.
Twenty years after his beloved biopic Ed Wood, director Tim Burton reteams with screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski for another study of oddball art. Big Eyes takes its name from the famed 1960s paintings of dour children with serious dilation issues, which made kitsch darlings out of husband-and-wife team Walter and Margaret Keane (played by two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz and five-time nominee Amy Adams). “They struck some chord in the suburban environment where I grew up – in every dentist’s office and store and house were these weird, sad, Big Brother things,” says Burton. “Some people loved them, and other people had a violently negative reaction. And I’m fascinated by the cosmic alignment that allows people to create something good and bad at the same time.”
The film, which Burton shot in 29 days for a reported $10 million (1/2 cost of his Alice in Wonderland), chronicles the couple’s marriage and rancorous split amid revelations that Margaret was the true creator of what the world believed was Walter’s work. “She got lost in the lie,” says Adams. “Walter manipulated her for years by telling her that she’d go to jail, that it was fraud, that people would ask for their money back. But her strength eventually brought the truth out.” Burton admits he was attracted to the Keanes’ messed-up union, adding darkly, “In life, is there anything other than a dysfuncional relationship?”.
Big Eyes opens on December 25.

USA Today shared earlier today the first images for upcoming Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, and a nice interview with Christoph Waltz and producer Lynette Howell about Walter Keane.
“Walter starts out as a sane, rational, charming individual. But at the end of the movie, he has become completely delusional,” says producer Lynette Howell. “He takes on a whole other level of madness. I don’t know a lot of actors who could play that character and that journey.”
Two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz nailed it in Big Eyes, Howell says, portraying a man who took credit for the famous big-eyed waif paintings by his wife, Margaret (Amy Adams).
“You have to understand that Margaret fell in love with this man. He charmed the pants off her. Walter was incredibly charming,” says Howell. “And that’s something Christoph has in spades. That’s why his characters are so complex.”
“Big Eyes” opens on Christmas Day.
