The first trailer for the latest Tim Burton film Big Eyes has debuted, starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz.

Yep, there’s no Johnny Depp and Burton made a movie about normal people, which The Weinstein Company will release on Christmas Day.

A stylish and completely real-life story about an artist Margaret Keane (Adams), the famed painter whose husband Walter (Waltz) claimed credit for her work to great acclaim and fortune in the 1950s and 60s for paintings featuring saucer-eyed kids. Jason Schwartzman, Krysten Ritter, Danny Huston and Terence Stamp round out the eclectic supporting cast.

Big Eyes is set for release on December 25th. Check out the film’s first trailer below.

Looks like a Lifetime movie, but I hope this gets some Oscar buzz. So Amy Adams could finally take home that long-overdue Oscar.

Directed and produced by Tim Burton, BIG EYES is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters 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 were 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 international fame while taking credit for her work.
