The Weinstein Company has released the first two Big Eyes images online. Tim Burton‘s latest film focuses on the artistic coupling of Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz). Walter became famous in the 1950s and 60s for paintings featuring saucer-eyed kids, though it was the shy Margaret who really did the work. Margaret eventually tired of the misplaced credit, which led to a divorce and a heated court battle to prove authorship of the paintings. I would love to see Burton take on a worthwhile story again, and this one has the potential to catapult him back to making an interesting movie with real characters as opposed to Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter being weird for 100 minutes.
Hit the jump to check out the Big Eyes images. The film also stars Krysten Ritter, Terrence Stamp, Jason Schwartzman, and Danny Huston. Big Eyes opens December 25th.
