Sorry about not posting a lot lately folks, but it’s just been one of those weeks. Still, when this trailer crossed my desk, I knew I wanted to get it up ASAP. Michael Keaton‘s upcoming movie Birdman, which is being directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu looks to be not only incredibly meta, but also, from the look of this trailer, both powerful and fun.
With a cast that also includes Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, and Amy Ryan and the subtitle The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, this is obviously not your typical superhero movie. As a matter of fact, it’s not a superhero movie at all, but a look at what happens when an actor known for an iconic portrayal of a superhero tries to stage a late-in-life comeback by mounting a Broadway adaptation of Raymond Carver’s play What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.
