I’m sure I’m not the only one who kind of forgot there’s a new Tim Burton movie coming out this year. That movie is called Big Eyes, and it tells the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who becomes famous as a painter, for his images of people with big eyes. The truth of his life, however, is that his wife Margaret, played by Amy Adams, is the actual talent. He’s been stealing her credit.
With Burton, Waltz, Adams and a Christmas Day release date, Big Eyes sounds like a sure fire Oscar-contender. But no one knows for sure until that all important first screening, which took place Thursday night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Did it work out? Read a bunch of early Big Eyes reviews below. Read More »

There are certain things we’ve come to expect from a Tim Burton movie. Fantastical settings with whimsical rules. Dead people and undead creatures. Johnny Depp in heavy white makeup. But his latest movie Big Eyes has none of that, and looks all the more intriguing for it.
The historical drama stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz as real-life artist Margaret and Walter Keane, whose paintings of doe-eyed children became a phenomenon in the ’50s and ’60s. Publicly, he took all the credit, but privately, she made all the art. The first Big Eyes trailer has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump.

Okay, so as I said yesterday, we usually try to focus on entertainment news and avoid celebrity stories, but the Star Wars Episode 7 cast and crew taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge felt entertainment news-worthy enough to feature on the site. I honestly thought that was the last of those videos we’d feature on /Film but now the comic book superheroes are taking the challenge in full costume: Henry Cavill and Amy Adams both took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on the set of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in their film costumes. I’m going to call it the Superman Ice Bucket Challenge.
Thats right, Cavill is wearing his complete Man of Steel Superman suit and Adams is dressed as reporter Lois Lane. We absolutely needed to share this video in case you missed it. And one Ice Bucket Challenge is nothing for Superman, so they give our favorite alien superhero something extra. Watch the Superman ice bucket challenge video embedded after the jump now.

It looks like Tim Burton is taking a brief break from his usual flights of fancy. We have the first look at his upcoming biopic Big Eyes, starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz as artists Margaret and Walter Keane.
Though the Keanes’ eerie paintings look like something out of a Burton fairy tale, the actual movie doesn’t sound so whimsical. The Keanes’ paintings hit it big in the ’50s and ’60s, with Walter taking all the artistic credit. However, it emerged during a bitter courtroom battle that Margaret had actually done all the paintings. Hit the jump to see the first Big Eyes images.

The passing of Philip Seymour Hoffman shook the film community and audiences everywhere, and we’re still processing the loss of one of the greatest acting talents our generation is likely to see.

Adams’ response was so deeply-felt as to be difficult to watch, but it speaks to the depth of the connection that Philip Seymour Hoffman created with other actors.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Briefly: Philip Seymour Hoffman is about to make his second feature as a director, and he has lined up Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams to star. The film is Ezekiel Moss, a supernatural thriller and a “Depression-era ghost story.” The film has been coming together slowly, after first being announced in fall 2012. When we reported on it then, Producer Cathy Schulman of Mandalay Pictures called the Keith Bunin script, which had been on the 2011 Black List, a “captivating and gothic exploration of faith and the supernatural.”
The script centers on “a young, imaginative boy living in a small town who befriends a mysterious drifter who may have the ability to communicate with the dead.” Gyllenhaal will play the drifter, while Adams will play the boy’s mother, a widow. Even with the cast starting to come together, there’s no word on when the film will shoot. [The Wrap]
