Last month saw the first rather excellent and totally charming trailer for Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, and now the official poster has been released, which you can view below.
Big Eyes is directed by Tim Burton, based on a screenplay written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. The cast includes Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Krysten Ritter, Terrence Stamp, Jason Schwartzman, and Danny Huston.
Big Eyes arrives in UK cinemas on Boxing Day.
Directed and produced by Tim Burton, BIG EYES is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters 1950s and early 1960s. The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane’s were actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Amy Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a lie that had grown to gigantic proportions. BIG EYES centers on Margaret’s awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings, and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who was catapulted to international fame while taking credit for her work.
