Michael Keaton Goes “Crazy” In New Birdman Spot

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Time for more full disclosure: when I first heard about Alejandro González Iñárritu’s new film Birdman, I thought it sounded pretty cool. Michael Keaton as a slightly unhinged former superhero star trying to make a comeback via the Broadway stage? Yes, please. As buzz has built for the film, it began to look better and better, with critics lauding Keaton’s performance as one of the best he’s done in a very long time. Now more trailers, clips, and TV spots have begun hitting the Internet in advance of Birdman‘s limited release on October 17, and my interest in the film has gone from casual to “dear God, I must see this movie!”

In the most recent clip from Birdman – well, less a clip and more a short trailer – Michael Keaton shows that he can still do crazy with the best of them. As Riggan Thomson, the actor attempting to stage his comeback, »

Oscar Season Preview

29 September 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Now that summer movie season is over, it’s Oscar season. During winter and fall many Oscar-hopeful movies are released. This is our overview of what you can expect leading up to the 2015 Oscars. 

For fans of film, fall and winter are the best times of the year. This is when, typically, some of the most well-received films are released. Unofficially, we call it Oscar Season, and there’s good reason that the year’s best films are saved for last. Any film released before the end of the year is eligible for Oscar nomination. Therefore, if you release your film towards the end of the year, it will be fresher in audience and critic minds when awards time rolls around in early March/late February (February 22nd, 2015 to be exact).

In preparation for the fall and winter movie season, we’ve put together this preview of films that have been getting lots of attention. »

Gone Girl review: Rosamund Pike a revelation in David Fincher thriller

David Fincher brings Gillian Flynn's novel Gone Girl to the big screen this week, and long-standing fans of the filmmaker will be delighted to know the thriller is up there with his very best.

Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as a couple whose marriage severely hits the rocks, is the tenth feature in Fincher's 20-year career. Digital Spy picks out some of the highlights from his previous nine films below...

1. Alien 3's death of Ripley (1992)

Fincher himself is no big fan of his directorial debut Alien³, a blockbuster that experienced a turbulent production and was ultimately disowned by the man calling the shots behind the camera. That said, it featured a watershed moment for the franchise - Ripley sacrificing herself while a Xenomorph bursts through her chest, desperate to escape certain death.

New Poster For Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Birdman Goes Retro

27 September 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Once upon a time, when studios built their films around a big cast filled with A-listers, they made sure to promote their latest spectacles by plastering their stars faces at the bottom of just about every poster. The actors names were also prominently featured to remind moviegoers of their favorite stars’ next movie.

In a nostalgic throwback to those golden days of Hollywood, Fox Searchlight has released a new name, face-driven poster for their film Birdman.

Directed by Academy Award nominee Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, 21 Grams), Birdman stars Michael Keaton as washed-up actor Riggan Thompson, who must overcome his ego and family trouble as he mounts a Broadway play to reclaim his past glory.

“Riggan is profoundly human,” Iñárritu says. “I saw him as a kind of Don Quixote, where the humor comes from the disparity and permanent dislocation of his solemn ambitions and the ignoble reality that surrounds him. »

6 Reasons Why Robert Downey Jr. Should Not Be Replaced As Iron Man

27 September 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach with six reasons why Robert Downey Jr. should not be replaced as Iron Man….

Rumour has is that Robert Downey Jr. will say goodbye to the character of Tony Stark after just two more movies, the first of which is next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, followed by a third Avengers film expected in 2017/2018. Many cannot imagine anyone else taking over the iconic role. However, President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has suggested that the role will eventually be recast and this will be a continual process as seen with long-standing franchies such as James Bond and Doctor Who. But Kevin Feige has also expressed the possibility of introducing new Avengers and phasing old ones out, giving characters a definitive ending and avoiding the need to recast.

Despite his immense popularity as Tony Stark, Robert Downey Jr. recently stated in an interview that as an actor playing a character, »

Hey, New 'Birdman' Poster, You Got Red on You

26 September 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I am counting down the days until I get to see Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance (28, for those wondering). Reviews have been glowing. I recently rewatched Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Amores Perros and 21 Grams, and my anticipation only rises from there. I am also a total sucker for backstage stories, and this looks like one of the stranger ones. I would probably be pumped for this even if it did not have all the Oscar buzz and great word of mouth simply because Michael Keaton is in it, but that buzz does not hurt. Today, we are treated to, or assaulted by, a new poster. I say assaulted because that red really catches your eye in a very intense way. I do not think that is a bad thing. In fact, I am glad there is a poster out there that grabs my attention. Usually, if a poster gets me to look at it, »

Check Out New Images Of Michael Keaton And Friends In Birdman

26 September 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

True confession time: you can keep your gravelly-voiced Christian Bales and your nipple-suited George Clooneys – my favorite Batman will always be Michael Keaton. In fact, Keaton raises the bar in just about every good, bad, or indifferent role he’s ever played. In his latest film Birdman, from director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu, it looks like Keaton might finally be getting his critical due.

Birdman tells the story of a former movie superhero star Riggan Thompson who gets a chance to stage his comeback via Broadway in an adaptation of Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. Family, friends, and ego get in the way as opening night approaches, and Thompson finds himself faced with personal and professional challenges. In addition to Keaton, the film stars Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts – so if Keaton’s name was not enough to get you into the theater, »

'Birdman' Poster with Michael Keaton and Emma Stone

26 September 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Maybe hard to believe looking at the latest theatrical poster, but Birdman has garnered nothing but praise from its round of festival screenings before it officially hits theaters on October 17th. As of now, it's the early favorite to sweep the Oscars, for everything from Best Picture to Best Actor for Michael Keaton to Best Original Screenplay to even Editing, but its a long way until next year's award ceremony and anything can happen.

That doesn't stop the fact that director Alejandro Gonz&#225lez I&#241&#225rritu has created an incredibly special film. Returning Michael Keaton to his Batman roots, the comedic drama finds a struggling actor coming face-to-face with his big screen superhero alter ego as he attempts to launch a career comeback. Check out this colorful comic book inspired one-sheet that not only features the Birdman of the title, but also the incredible ensemble cast that includes Michael Keaton, »

New York Film Festival preview: 10 films that can make it anywhere

26 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The film-festival circuit this time of year is not unlike presidential-primary season. Venice or Telluride are sort of like the Iowa caucus, an important first step for a film to generate some name recognition and Oscar buzz—but not exactly the setting for a coronation. Toronto is the traditional Oscar-campaign battleground, a sort of New Hampshire primary that often separates the contenders from the pretenders. Last year, Toronto unofficially nominated 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, and Dallas Buyers Club, and those films went on to collect major awards.

But this year, the races still remain wide open after the first new rounds, »

Check Out the Brand-New Birdman Poster

25 September 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After a rapturous reception at the Venice and Telluride film festivals, the Oscar-buzzed Birdman flies into New York on October 12, where it will close the New York Film Festival. Fitting, since Alejandro González Iñárritu's film takes place in New York, where washed-up actor Riggan Thompson (Michael Keaton) has come to stage a play in an attempt to win critical respectability and put the specter of his movie superhero past behind him. It's a bracing comeback role for Keaton, who's circled not just by cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (the Oscar winner has filmed Birdman in a series of bravura long takes) but by a murderer's row of other talented actors, including Emma Stone as his daughter, Amy Ryan as his ex-wife, Naomi Watts, Edward Norton, and Andrea Riseborough as the anxious thespians in the play, and Zach Galifianakis as the play's harried producer.
