Two-time Oscar nominated director Tim Burton (“Frankenweenie”, 2013) brings another eccentric storyline to the big-screen, albeit minus Johnny Depp. “Big Eyes” follows the true story of Walter and Margaret Keane, played superbly by both Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”) and Amy Adams (“American Hustle”), as newlyweds in the 1950s with a shared fondness for art.

Most of us remember Michael Keaton’s successful string of comedies in the early 1980s that started off with “Night Shift” and “Mr. Mom”. Afterwards, he starred in Tim Burton’s highly anticipated “Batman” in 1989. By 1992, he once again played the caped crusader in “Batman Returns”, earning Keaton widespread acclaim. Then something happened; Keaton’s movies were more “misses” than “hits” until he seemed to disappear from cinema screens overnight. Keaton’s career had fallen into the category of insignificance.
