Birdman TV Spot

"You were a movie star, remember?" Are you ready for the return of the Birdman? Not much longer now. Fox Searchlight has debuted the first full TV spot (via ComingSoon) for Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Birdman, starring Michael Keaton as actor Riggan Thomson, who once played Birdman the comic book superhero in a series of movies. To put it simply – this is the movie of the fall season, the one everyone will be talking about, the one everyone will be seeing, it's one of the best of the year hands down. Even Edgar Wright raved about it: "A dazzling tightrope walk of cinema". There is one great joke ruined in this TV spot already, but the screech and the rest of it is awesome. Can't wait to go back for another round of Birdman. Take a look!

Fire up this first TV spot for Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Birdman, direct from Fox Searchlight's YouTube:

    October has three of my most anticipated: Gone Girl, Birdman and Nightcrawler. Great!

    I'm excited but I don't think I'll "love" this movie. I think it will just be a great "watch it once" kind of movie. I just have been getting that vibe that the mood isn't going to be the best one to want to relive by re-watching.
