Birdman Trailer

By Drax Largo on June 12th, 2014

It’s been a long time coming, but we now have our first look at Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s Birdman in the form of a new trailer below.

Birdman isn’t really an action movie per se, but it does feature some great casting in the form of Michael Keaton. The thrust of this one concerns a washed-up actor who once played an iconic superhero. Throughout the story, he must overcome his ego and family trouble as he prepares to mount a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory.

Think The Wrestler meets Batman??

Well, not quite, but the trailer does look pretty killer. I’m definitely on board for this one.

This flick is bound to be a small character piece, but the fact that Keaton may be sending up his turn as Batman to some degree is very appealing. Not to mention the fact that Emma Stone and Zach Galifianakis are also co-starring. Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan and Andrea Riseborough also co-star.

Birdman is set for release October 17, 2014.
