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:
And here's a cool poster that accompanied the trailer sent over by Fox Searchlight:
Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, who co-wrote the script with Nicolás Giacobone & Armando Bo (Biutiful) and newcomer Alexander Dinelaris. The film tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton), famous for portraying an iconic superhero, as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself. Also starring Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts, Fox Searchlight releases the film on October 17th this fall.
