Photo Mania: Big Eyes, The Theory of Everything, If I Stay, and More
Another Wednesday, another Photo Mania. In today’s edition, you’ll find the latest movie stills for exciting movies on the horizon, like Tim Burton’s Big Eyes and the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything. You can also find the latest looks at If I Stay, The Walk, Son of a Gun, The Judge, and Pride.
Make sure to check out each photo below!
Despite a December 25th release date, Tim Burton’s (Alice in Wonderland) Walter Keane biopic, titled Big Eyes, hasn’t released a whole lot. That changed this past week as we finally got to see a look of Amy Adams. Although you can’t see any other characters in the picture above, the movie also has a cast that includes Christoph Waltz (as Keane himself), Krysten Ritter (AMC’s Breaking Bad), and more.

Two photos released for another biopic – this one for Stephen Hawking – and I’m really liking what I see so far. The movie, titled The Theory of Everything, stars Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) as the physicist with Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) playing his wife. James Marsh (Man on Wire) releases the film November 7th. Take a look at both pictures above to see Redmayne’s spot-on portrayal.
Today’s first gallery belongs to the upcoming film adaptation of If I Stay. I personally haven’t read the book, but I know how well film adaptations do in Hollywood, so I’m not surprised to hear about this movie. It does star esteemed young actress Chloe Grace Moretz (alongside World War Z’s Mireille Enos). Check out ten new photos below before R.J. Cutler’s directorial debut releases on August 22nd.

The aforementioned James Marsh has a connection to the film The Walk as well (which just so happened to have released two photos as well). Robert Zemeckis (Flight) will be bringing the same story to screen as Man on Wire but not in the form of a documentary. Zemeckis has enlisted Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ben Kingsley to tell the story of a man that high-wired across the World Trade Center buildings in 1974. The Walk comes out October 2, 2015 but the first two photos can already be seen now. (Source: USA Today)
I also have a gallery for the Australian film Son of a Gun. I don’t have a lot for this film other than the cast, which includes Ewan McGregor (Beginners) and Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent), but I did dig up five photos for the movie. As of now, the crime thriller doesn’t have a U.S. playdate but I could see that changing soon. Check out the photos for Julius Avery’s directorial debut below. (Source: The Film Stage)
We’ve gotten used to seeing Robert Downey, Jr. as a superhero. However, with his turn this year earlier for Chef and his upcoming role in David Dobkin’s (Wedding Crashers) The Judge, we’re reminded that he has more depth. A new picture for the comedy-drama can be seen above. If you’d like to see the movie, check it out October 10th. (Source: Collider)
I also have three debut photos for the film Pride starring Andrew Scott (Locke), Bill Nighy (Love Actually), and Dominic West (300). The historical drama will focus on a group of British gay and lesbian activists during the ’80’s. I’m not very familiar with this film but the timing (at least in the U.S.) seems timely. Check out the three photos below for Matthew Warchus’ (Simpatico) film that releases September 12th. (Source: IMDb)
