Word on the street is Big Eyes is a bust and Amy Adams will be hard-pressed to land that Oscar nomination everyone assumes she will get. A Frustrated Everything: I refuse to accept this. They like Adams too much not to nominate her in this so-so year for Best Actress. Etchie: If Amy Adams in Big Eyes knows that she's not competitive even for a nomination, why not throw support and endorse instead her Bff Emily Blunt's 1st Oscar nomination bid for Into the Woods? Adams likewise played the same Baker's Wife role Summer 2012 @ Central Park NY. »
During an appearance at Atlanta’s Walker Stalker convention this past weekend, actor Jason Momoa reportedly spoke about his newly confirmed role as Aquaman in the expanding DC Comics cinematic universe.
According to Comicbook.com, Momoa explained the secrecy surrounding the role, telling fans, “Listen, I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you’ve just got to keep it quiet… I was just trying to respect Warner Bros. and everyone’s wishes. I’m really, really happy that I don’t have to be quiet anymore, because that’s really hard for me.”
On the subject of his rumored appearance in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Momoa demurred, “I really wish I could say something, but I don’t even know… I found out some of the characters that are in ‘Justice League’ that are casted that I didn’t know. »

After being rumored to play Aquaman for almost a full year, Warner Bros. finally confirmed last week that Jason Momoa will in fact play the King of Atlantis in Justice League and his own stand-alone adventure. The actor made an appearance at Walker Con in Atlanta over the weekend, where he gave his first public comments about the role.
When asked about the level of secrecy involved in his casting, the actor said he tried to respect Warner Bros.' wishes to keep his casting a secret, but it was very hard for him to do so.
"Listen, I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you've just got to keep it quiet. You know what I mean, I was just trying to respect Warner Bros. and everyone's wishes. I'm really, really happy that I don't have to be quiet anymore, »

Sneak Peek more from director Tim Burton's new dramatic feature "Big Eyes" based on the life of illustrator Walter Keane, an artist noted in the 1950's and 1960's for his 'kitsch' paintings of large-eyed waifs.
"...'Walter Keane' (Waltz) became a national celebrity and talk show fixture in the 1950's after he pioneered the mass production of prints of big-eyed kids, using his marketing savvy to sell them cheaply in hardware stores and gas stations. Unfortunately, he claimed to be the artist. That role was played by Margaret (Amy Adams), his shy wife.
"She generated the paintings from their basement and Walter's contribution was adding his signature to the bottom. The ruse broke up their marriage, and when she tried to make it known that she authored the paintings, they ended up in a court battle..."

• "Visionary Director" would be so much more impressive as a description if it weren't so overused.
• The tag line is basic but it does cleverly have a double meaning with the last bit "... and everyone bought it"
• A lot of people seem to be sure that this one won't be a major Oscar player but apart from test screenings (a notoriously unreliable source of info) no one has seen it so it's one of our mystery movies when it »

Today we have the official poster for the upcoming "Big Eyes," which stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained), and is directed by Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Check it out below. Plot: The story focuses on Margaret (Adams) and Walter Keane (Waltz), a pair of artists who popularized mass-produced paintings in the 1950s and 1960s that featured portraits of small children with big, sad eyes. Walter was said to be the painter, but it was later revealed that Margaret did the paintings. Margaret sued to get her share of the profits that resulted in a 1986 case in which a judge forced the couple to a "paint off" in federal court. The new movie, which co-stars Krysten Ritter, Terrence Stamp, Jason Schwartzman, and Danny Huston, is set to hit theaters on Christmas (December 25th). Poster: (click to enlarge) »
Big Eyes is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters of the 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 art was 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 »

(Tread carefully; there are Major Spoilers ahead!) This morning, a news report from Channel 10 Wilx in East Lansing, Michigan, confirmed that a female Robin will be appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The news came from an extra who wished to remain anonymous. This matched up with earlier reports that actress Jena Malone had dyed her hair red to play Carrie Kelley, the Robin in Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns. Now The Hollywood Reporter is confirming that Jena Malone has indeed been cast in director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up. But is she playing Robin?
There is no confirmation from Warner Bros. or DC about this late addition to the cast, or which character she is actually playing. According to the Channel 10 news report, the character was added to the script late in the game during some last minute rewrites. Multiple sources confirm that Jena Malone »

Her father added that she suffered from bipolar disorder and had bouts of depression and anxiety — she had gone missing in the past — but said he didn't believe she was suicidal.

A couple of weeks back, rumour resurfaced claiming that Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder for the role of Carrie Kelley (a.k.a. The Dark Knight Returns’ Robin) in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, stemming from the fact that the actress had died her hair red – much like the character in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.
Well, Variety is now quoting an alleged extra from the top-secret film, who has apparently told local news station Wilx-10 that “the character of Robin is now female”. This certainly adds some credence to the original report, unless the “extra” is just making it up to get themselves on the local news, of course…

The Weinstein Company and Yahoo! have just released the first poster featuring stars Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams.

Jena Malone, who plays a true badass in Hunger Games: Catching Fire, is your new Robin in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The news comes from one of the movie extras, who is risking a $5 million fine from Warner Bros. for revealing the details.
The individual sat down with a local news station in Michigan, Wilx-10 News, and revealed to them Robin's female identity. Malone had previously been spotted in Detroit. (So no, she wasn't just "hanging out" around the set.)
The source also commented on a scene that was being shot, involving a red carpet and some faux news coverage vans. The scene in question was being shot at the Art Museum on the Michigan State University campus, and it will involve "a fight between Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg)." The scene will include "pyrotechnics-like fireworks, paparazzi »

It's unusual for the marketing of a film to begin with a trailer before the poster comes out, but that's exactly what happened with Tim Burton's latest drama Big Eyes. The period drama follows Amy Adams as artist Margaret Keane along with her husband, Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who for many years claimed credit for her paintings of children with abnormally big, beautiful eyes. While it's still a bit strange, this is undoubtedly Burton's most grounded film in years, and now the first poster for the winter release has arrived, showing Adams and Waltz along with one of the famous paintings that Keane made. Look below! Here's the first poster for Tim Burton's Big Eyes from Yahoo: If you haven't watched the first trailer for Tim Burton's Big Eyes, you can see it right here. A drama centered on the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane (Adams »
