The Weinstein Company is once more heading into the awards race this year, and one of its biggest contenders will be Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, a film with the potential to pick up awards across the board.
We recently saw the first images from the biographical drama, giving us a glimpse of Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz as Margaret and Walter Keane, and now TWC has launched a promising first trailer, strengthening the buzz that is already surrounding this film.
Walter Keane became a household name in the 1950s, when his oddly emotional and best-selling paintings of big-eyed children made him a coveted TV talk show guest. But was the art really his? His wife Margaret claims that Walter’s only contributions to the work were his signatures, and the Keanes’ subsequent legal battle will destroy their marriage and lead to a jaw-dropping court showdown that will prove once and for all who the real artist is.
