Big Eyes Trailer
The early days of Tim Burton were always immensely fascinating. From "Beetlejuice," to "Batman" and from "Ed Wood" to "Edward Scissorhands," Burton created a world of sincere strange-ness. It was a world I loved. Then, as I got older, it seemed Burton was bit by the Hollywood bug. Not only that, but it seemed he had a competition in himself to see how many weird roles he could conjure for his buddy Johnny Depp. Sure, I enjoy weird Johnny over normal Johnny, but it got to the point of being absolutely droll and strenuous to watch.
It seems his new trailer for "Big Eyes" seems like a return to form, in both atmosphere and mood. It's a Depp-less movie that stars Christoph Waltz, Amy Adams, Jason Schwartzman and Danny Huston. It tells the true story of Walter Keane, a successful painter from the 1950's and 1960's. A painter who became famous for his wife's paintings, and the Keane's themselves became hugely notorious for it. Waltz will play Walter and Adams will play his wife.
From my standpoint, it looks like "Big Eyes" will hopefully be a great way to re-introduce Burton's old style. I can't wait to see what this cast does under Burton's eye.
