Big Eyes is not exactly the kind of movie you might expect from Tim Burton, being based on the true story of artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) who created the famous series of paintings of doe-eyed subjects and her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz), whose marketing savvy made them a phenomenon in the ‘50s and ‘60s.
With a filmography that has never slipped over into the normal, Big Eyes may be the most unexpected film of Burton’s career. It will open on December 25th. Check out the trailer after he jump.
