Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company have added Big Eyes to the studio’s roster, bringing the stunning and powerful portrayal of painter Margaret Keane to Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in April.
From director Tim Burton, “Big Eyes” tells the outrageous true story of one of the most epic frauds in history. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, painter Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) had reached success beyond belief, revolutionizing the commercialization of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The bizarre and shocking truth would eventually be discovered though: Walter’s works were actually not created by him at all, but by his wife Margaret (Amy Adams). 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.
The DVD version will also contain the Featurette ”The Making of Big Eyes”, while the Blu-Ray version will feature the making-of, along with Q&A Highlights.
“Big Eyes” has been scheduled for release on April 14 for $34.99 on Blu-Ray Disc and $29.98 on DVD.
