Amy Adams fights for artistic integrity in the trailer for Tim Burton's 'Big Eyes'

18 September 2014 5:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I've been diving back into Tim Burton's filmography as of late in preparation for this winter's "Big Eyes." The film will tell the story of artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), who build an empire with her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) on the little white lie that he was the one responsible for her popular images of children with, well, big eyes. They would simply sell better if considered a dude's work, you see. What I've been struck by — not that it isn't an obvious trajectory for Burton's career that many have observed — is how alive his art was prior to an early-to-mid aughts decline that has left us with products like "Alice in Wonderland" and "Planet of the Apes" and "Dark Shadows." Films like "Ed Wood" and "Edward Scissorhands" and "Beetle Juice" pop with vision and vigor, whereas so much of his work as of late seems to wear »

‘Back Issues: The Hustler Magazine Story’ sells as well as the magazine

Back Issues: The Hustler Magazine Story

Written by Flynn Hundhausen and Michael Lee Nirenberg

Directed by Michael Lee Nirenberg

USA, 2014

Hustler, the notoriously gritty, shameless skin magazine, could easily double as the name of publisher Larry Flynt’s autobiography. For all the editorial prowess and First Amendment arguments he engineered and fought, he is still just a businessman.

Back Issues: The Hustler Magazine Story makes a point of demonstrating that the magazine’s success lived or died with Flynt’s public profile and outrageous behavior. Be it getting arrested, shot, changing his religious views, or running for President, sales always went up. And personal convictions aside, you can’t help but feel it’s all a long con by a very talented huckster from Kentucky.

Director Michael Lee Nirenberg follows the history of the smut rag in a largely linear fashion, with unprecedented access. Nirenberg’s father William was actually »

22 Candid Quotes That Might Make You Love Courtney Love

9 July 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Courtney Love could easily be considered one of the most polarizing women of our generation. Since forming the band Hole in the late 1980s, she has become both a rock legend and a successful actress (even earning a Golden Globe nomination for her role in 1995's The People vs. Larry Flynt) while also influencing fashion trends, advocating for Lgbt rights, and speaking out against rape and domestic violence. Conversely, Courtney drew ire from the public after her husband Kurt Cobain's suicide in 1994 - with many Nirvana fans blaming her for his untimely passing - and has also been the subject of controversy in recent years due to her struggle with substance abuse and her strained relationship with her 21-year old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. Though some may debate the things she's said publicly throughout her career, Courtney has also made many poignant - yet contentious - statements over the years. »

Another musician is joining the final season of "Sons of Anarchy": Courtney Love is set for a multi-episode arc on the FX biker series.

Sympathetic Doesn't Have To Mean Likable

16 June 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jennine Lanouette for ScreenTakes created and narrates this excellent video "refuting the notion that a character must be likable to be sympathetic". Her examples draw comparisons between characters such as Paul Newman's title character in Harper, Quvenzhane Wallis in Beasts of the Southern Wild, Melanie Laurent in Inglourious Basterds, a load of characters from Margin Call, James Bond in From Russia with Love, Woody Harrelson in The People vs. Larry Flynt, Charlize Theron in Monster and, of course, Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street where she says, "We're notified in the opening scene we're not supposed to like Jordan Belfort." Hmmmm, and yet the argument against this film was that it glorified all that Belfort didc Interesting. Give the video a watch (though, be warned, it's Nsfw), it's a fantastic look at creating sympathetic characters out of unlikable people and just might have you »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #91. Tim Burton’s Big Eyes

21 February 2014 5:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Big Eyes

Director: Tim Burton

Writers: Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski

Producers: Scott Alexander, Tim Burton, Lynette Howell, Larry Karaszewski

U.S. Distributor: The Weinstein Co.

Cast: Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman, Terence Stamp, Danny Huston

This will likely come across as sacrilege, but my disinterest in Tim Burton has grown over the years starting somewhere around the time he gave us his last most ambitious project in Big Fish. Replacing Johnny Depp in favor of the alluring ensemble cast (might be another award mention-worthy turn from Amy Adams) the scaled down dramatic compelling bio-pic fare sees Burton once again work with the same scribes who gave us Ed Wood and additionally know how to write court-room scenes of high value as seen with The People vs. Larry Flynt.

We Can't Wait #10: Big Eyes

26 January 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

[Editor's Note: We Can't Wait is a Team Experience series, in which we highlight our top 14 most anticipated films of 2014. Here's Julien Kojfer on "Big Eyes"]

Big Eyes

A drama centered on 50’s painter Margaret Keane, whose husband claimed credit for her works after she achieved phenomenal success.

Talent

Tim Burton is directing a starry cast including Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Jason Schwartzman, Krysten Ritter, Terence Stamp and Danny Husto. 

Why We Can't Wait

Sure, the perpetually disheveled auteur famously lost his mojo at the turn of the century, when his unique style suddenly froze into a soulless brand of manufactured gothic whimsy, and his name sadly became synonymous with lazy adaptations, predictably misshapen aesthetics, and the obligatory casting of Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter in cadaverous makeup and improbable wigs.

Which is precisely why no one who’s ever loved Burton could fail to be excited by Big Eyes, because it doesn’t sound like anything he’s made since the 90’s. An adult drama free of fantasy elements with a female protagonist, starring »

Golden Globe Winners vs. Oscars: The 2014 Update!

13 January 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

For a second year in a row -- and this is looking like how it's going to be from now on -- the Golden Globe winners have been revealed ahead of the Oscar nominations have not yet been announced. The Oscar nominations come this Thursday morning while Thursday night the Broadcast Film Critics Association (Bfca) will announce the winners of the 2014 Critics Choice Awards on Thursday night followed by the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday. So, yeah, it's time to start looking at these things even closer. As I have done for the last several years, today I offer my eighth installment of my "Globes vs. Oscars" column (2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013) and we'll take a look at the past 29 years of Golden Globe winner history compared to the Oscars and see where last night's winners may gain an edge and where they most likely won't and we'll begin with the lead acting categories. »
