Back in June, we got our first glimpse of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman, and it looked completely awesome. Now an extra-long international trailer has dropped and our initial assessment still seems accurate. Michael Keaton stars as a former giant movie star, famous for playing a superhero, who tries to mount a play that will be his comeback. It co-stars Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Ryan, Edward Norton, and Naomi Watts. Hell, we’d watch that cast just sit around and hang out with a bunch of birds, man. »

Ready to meet Birdman? In this look at what happens to an aging actor made iconic for playing a legendary character (the titular Birdman), a lot goes down. Michael Keaton plays the star in question, Riggan Thomson, who's now trying to jump-start his career by starring in a play, and the movie follows the days leading up to his debut. There are make-outs (starring Emma Stone), fistfights (starring shirtless Edward Norton), and concerned looks from Zach Galifianakis. The new trailer definitely succeeds in making me want to see more, especially knowing this is a comedy from director Alejandro González Iñárritu, who's best known for 21 Grams and Babel. Wrap your mind around that and watch the trailer - the film comes out Oct. 17. Check out the first teaser trailer below. Front Page Image Source: Fox Searchlight »

We have all been entranced by the mysteriously cool teaser for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, and Zach Galifianakis. The unique story of an actor on the verge of a mental breakdown didn't provide much in the way of plot in the first teaser and yet we were all curious as to the editing, or lack thereof. Some have indicated the movie may be filmed as a single take while others have disputed that. During a recent event called »

Michael Keaton‘s life stinks in the first full trailer for “Birdman,” an upcoming black comedy about a washed-up actor trying to pull off a Broadway play in an effort to distance himself from his superhero legacy. The preview (above) makes it perfectly clear, however, that Keaton's character can't stop thinking about being “Birdman,” and starts to crack as pressures from the play begin to mount.

Smells like balls,” Keaton's inner superhero narrates. “We had it all. »

With movies such as 21 Grams and Babel in his filmography, Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu has garnered a number of fans, many of whom are looking forward to his first feature film since 2010. However, the story itself, which revolves around an actor best known for playing a superhero trying to regain his fame and artistic integrity, also drew a lot of interest, moreso when it was revealed that Michael Keaton had been cast in the lead role. With Keaton being best known for playing Batman in Tim Burton’s imagining of the superhero, many are interested to see how he’d interpret this role. Following the film’s first trailer, a new international trailer has now been released, which delves into the story and character relationships a little further. The film also stars Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, and Amy Ryan, and is set to be released in the Us on October 17th, »

Shall I count the reasons we should all be massively excited for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman? It boasts an incredible cast, hails from a truly brilliant director and tells the darkly comedic tale of a washed-up actor mounting a comeback, to name a few of many.
Additionally, the trailers have painted the picture of a film that’s both ambitious in terms of its story (which may well double as a meta commentary on both Keaton’s career and the foolhardiness of superhero worship) and its style (like Rope, it appears to have been shot in several massive long takes woven together to make it appear unbroken). Now, a full-length international trailer for Birdman has hit – and it’s pretty spectacular.

Fox Searchlight has released a new international full-length Birdman trailer for director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ambitious black comedy. The film stars Michael Keaton as an actor who once played an iconic superhero, and now faces troubles with his ego and family as he prepares to mount a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory. The previous trailers have all been fantastic, but they’ve simply teased the plot without giving much away story-wise. This new international trailer digs deep into the descent of Keaton’s character, and the actor looks to be giving a truly tour de force performance as a man on the brink of a career meltdown. Moreover, it’s fantastic to see the kinds of camera tricks that Iñárritu uses to make the film appear to be one continuous shot. I seriously can’t wait to see this movie.
