With a cast that includes Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz, this film seems like a worthwhile gamble with time & money, especially considering it’s coming out of Tim Burton’s head. The beautiful Krysten Ritter has the tough job of selling the movie to media & audiences as she made appearances on ‘Good Morning America’ earlier this morning, as well as the film’s premiere yesterday at NYC’s famous Museum of Modern Art.
Here’s the film’s plot & trailer:
Margaret Keane’s work as an artist became phenomenally successful in the 1950s, but she was given no recognition for her work. Her husband, Walter Keane, claimed to be the artist and became a national celebrity and talk show fixture in the 1950s after he pioneered the mass production of prints of big-eyed kids, and used his marketing savvy to sell them cheaply in hardware stores and gas stations across the United States. Margaret generated the paintings from their basement and Walter’s contribution was adding his signature to the bottom. The ruse broke up their marriage, and when she tried to make it known that she authored the paintings, they ended up in a court battle after she found that Walter took the paintings without permission. The case culminated in a dramatic courtroom showdown. Source
We’re going to run with the photo agency’s theory that the 32-year-old actress was waiting for a friend at a bus stop in L.A. yesterday afternoon.
From a career standpoint, Krysten Ritter is lucky that she can successfully juggle both film & TV since she’ll be able to maximize her earning potential during. After two seasons of ” Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23″ and a long list of films, recently NBC canceled Krysten’s latest sitcom “Mission Control”—even before releasing the pilot! No big deal since she had a total of five films hitting theaters just in 2014.
Krysten’s big film this year will be the Time Burton directed & produced “Big Eyes,” which hits theaters on December 25. The film also stars Hollywood bigwigs Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams. Check the plot for more:

Actress Krysten Ritter was all smiles while cruising around NYC yesterday afternoon.
For those of you who missed it, the 32-year-old beauty was recently cast in NBC’s upcoming astronaut-themed comedy pilot ‘Mission Control‘. Krysten will play the role of an aerospace engineer named Dr. Mary Kendricks working in a space program that employs mostly men. Sounds like it has elements of ‘Big Bang’ by place a hottie in a geek setting. Let’s hope NBC was successful in poaching a few ‘Big Bang’ writers to help finally hit one out of the park from a ratings standpoint.
As most of you know, Krysten Ritter is best known for her roles on “Breaking Bad,” as well as the ABC comedy series “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23″ stayed in shape with a jog through L.A.’s Runyon Canyon Park. The 32-year-old beauty was accompanied by a male friend and her pet pooch.
With four films set to drop this year, the film with the most buzz is probably ‘Veronica Mars’, which will of course be based on the original CW series starring Kristen Bell. Last year, the film’s director, producer & writer Rob Thomas generated a lot of press by avoiding the usual Hollywood funding system and utilizing Kickstarter, the world’s largest crowdfunding platform. The film, which will hit theaters on March 14, went on to meet its $2 million goal in less than ten hours—a record for the Kickstarter. Needless to say, it’ll be very interesting to see the final product, but more importantly, I think a lot of people will be waiting to see how much money this film will generate at the box-office!
