Watch: Michael Keaton May Be Crazy in Teaser Trailer for 'Birdman'
"How did we end up here in this dump?" If you've been waiting for some kind of Michael Keaton comeback, the time is now. We were hoping roles in films like The Other Guys, Toy Story 3 and Need for Speed would be a resurgence for the star of Beetlejuice and Tim Burton's Batman, but it looks like we just had to wait for the right film. Birdman is directed by 21 Grams, Babel and Amores Perros helmer Alejandro González Iñárritu, and the first trailer has just arrived, showing off what promises to be a truly unique tale of a washed up actor, haunted by his past as a big time superhero movie star. Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis and Edward Norton pop up, but this is Keaton's movie for sure. Watch now!
Here's the teaser trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman from Fox Searchlight:
