It’s a bird, it’s a plane…it’s BIRDMAN!
Unfortunately, this is not another superhero film (although we secretly hoped it was) but it sure looks like former Batman star, Michael Keaton is ready to show us his post-“Batman” career in his new film “Birdman” (aka The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance).
Not to be confused with the story in “Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law”, the film is a dark comedy that tells the story of a washed-up superhero actor who struggles to mount a Broadway play, and now attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself. The film is directed by award-winning Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu and features a stellar cast that includes Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts.
Fox Searchlight released the trailer for the film last Thursday and gave us a better look at Keaton’s character since we still can’t shake off his role as Batman. We must say that the trailer looks promising and we can’t wait to watch it!
“Birdman” is slated for release on January 22nd exclusively at selected GSC outlets.
