Today we have an international, restricted trailer for the upcoming "Birdman" dark comedy, which stars Michael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts. Check it out below.
The story follows a former actor, who once played an iconic superhero, as he mounts a Broadway play in an attempt to reclaim past glory. However, the play's egotistical leading man threatens to ruin everything.
"Birdman" is directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu (21 Grams) and is set to hit theaters on October 17th.

I'll watch it if Keaton shows up to the premiere decked out in the full 1989 Batman suit. That would be epic and tell me that at least he's committed.

This news should be top of the list

This is an awesome idea! And it's a self-reflective film for Keaton who in fact turned down doing Batman Forever because he wanted to do new projects! It's wishful thinking, but I'd love Keaton to get some kind of award notice for this film. It looks really thought-provoking on the celebrity lifestyle. Actually it's a cast of superhero rejects. Keaton who left Batman, Norton who got fired as the Hulk, and Stone who got killed in Amazing Spider-Man 2. That last one was probably for the best. LOL

Let's look at the positives. Judging by Keaton's craziness it looks like he might beat the sh*t out of Galifianakis. LOL

^^Unless he actually murders him, it's a waste.

I will defiantly see this one for the love of Keaton. Sounds like the character Birdman is having a conversation with Keaton's character. Sounds fun.

I hope the film shows him having a whore of an ex girlfriend, 20 years his junior, that banged him for about 6 years so she could ride his coat tails all over Hollywood blowing every producer that she could until she finally landed a sh*t part on a sh*t comedy show called Buddies. Her whore name should be Courtney Mox in the this film.
