WATCH: Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz Star In “Big Eyes”

Tim Burton tells the story of Margaret and Walter Keane (played by Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz), and their breakthrough into the art world behind a trail of lies.

Stepping away from his usual cast and dreary color palette, director Tim Burton has completed a biopic about artists Walter and Margaret Keane titled Big Eyes. Amy Adams takes on the role of Margaret, a painter known for her portrayal of people with the titular big eyes. The film follows the story of her and her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) who took credit for the paintings as shown within the brand new trailer.

The married couple sees a lot of success as they sell original work, and reproductions en masse. Yet even in the small scenes we see, there’s evident conflict between Margaret and Walter, mostly seen through the piercing expressions on Adams’s face.

With names like Krysten Ritter and Jason Schwartzmann also supporting the cast, Big Eyes seems like a film gearing up for a statue run.

Big Eyes is out on Christmas Day.
