Big Eyes Trailer (2014)

Trailer for Big Eyes.

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.

Finding an actor and actress to play the lead roles turned out being sort of a headache for Tim Burton. Things were looking good when Kate Hudson and Thomas Haden Church were cast, but they were later swapped by Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Reynolds. The positions were filled for a year, before Witherspoon and Reynolds bailed, leaving the roles open to Adams and Waltz.
