Directed by Tim Burton, the feature deals with Margaret’s journey in stepping out of the shadows of her husband’s popularity and claiming what is rightfully hers.

The new Big Eyes featurette, exclusively available on Yahoo! Screen, contains archival footage of Walter Keane that hasn’t been viewed by the public in over 40 years (it was revealed on last week’s installment of CBS Sunday Morning).

Batman 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Set For November Debut

 

Michael Keaton’s run as the caped crusader still holds up after all these years, and starting November 11 you’ll get to revisit his work with the Batman 25th Anniversary Two-Disc Edition Blu-ray. The picture proved to be a turning point in both Keaton and Tim Burton’s careers, enabling them to carve out successful careers in showbiz (Keaton’s manic energy, coupled with his experience of playing a superhero, are all in play for the highly anticipated feature Birdman). Burton’s next feature Big Eyes comes out later this year.

The two-disc set comes with what Warner Brothers Home Entertainment describes as “distinctive new sleek Diamond Luxe collector-style packaging.” A new special feature, Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster, takes a look at how Batman blazed the trail for 25 years worth of Caped Crusader success.
