We're getting our first look at Tim Burton's upcoming biopic Big Eyes!

In a new movie sneak peek via USA Today, Amy Adams, who plays real-life American artist Margaret Keane in the film, paints one of her famed paintings of a young girl with large, sad eyes. Adams sports a curly blond wig and a white painter's smock while staring at the camera with paintbrush in hand.

Big Eyes follows the story of Margaret and husband Walter Keane, who rose to fame for their big-eyed portraits in the 1950s and ‘60s. For years, Walter took credit for the paintings done by Margaret.

"I remember the pictures from the 1960s, they were everywhere," Christoph Waltz, who plays Walter in the flick, told USA Today.

"Margaret really believed that as a woman, people would not buy her art," Adams added. "[Walter] convinced her the life they were able to lead was because the artist was a man, who could sell more art at a higher price than a woman."

Big Eyes hits theaters Dec. 25.
