There's no Johnny Depp or supernatural forces in sight in the trailer for Tim Burton's Big Eyes, but there are plenty of other familiar faces. The true story centers on the relationship between Walter (Christoph Waltz) and Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), who became famous in the 1950s and '60s thanks to popular paintings of big-eyed children. As the trailer shows, Walter took credit for the paintings, which were actually created by Margaret, because he didn't think people would buy art from a woman. The film from The Weinstein Company opens Christmas Day. Krysten Ritter and Jason Schwartzman also star.

It’s September, so why wouldn’t we start predicting an Oscar race that won’t finish for another five months?
To be fair, Venice, Telluride, and the Toronto film festivals have all concluded. Many films have screened. Many films have connected with audiences, and a rough draft of the Oscar race is beginning to come into focus. Sure, no Academy member will even begin popping in those screener DVDs for another couple of months, but it’s still worth discussing what has buzz and what is likely to still be on voters’ minds once the weather finally begins to cool off. »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Justin Long may play a man who gets transformed into a human walrus by a deranged former sailor in Kevin Smith's "Tusk" - but as the actor himself tells it, the upcoming horror-comedy actually wasn't his most difficult movie to shoot. So what was? "'Herbie: Fully Loaded'," said Long during "Tusk's" recent press junket. "For reasons that have nothing to do with prosthetics." Okay, so he was kind of joking (ahem).

So I would say it was that, it was very tiring. And going to these [dark] places...to sit in that for several days at a time, is like, it's not fun. And had it not been for Kevin and the tone that he creates on set, »
