Dubbed a comedy, Birdman follows Riggan Thomson (Michale Keaton), a washed up former super hero actor as he tries to get a Broadway play started. This first trailer is more of a taste of the visuals and less plot oriented, but it already looks pretty fantastic. Check out the official synopsis, then art work and then finally the trailer.
BIRDMAN or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) – famous for portraying an iconic superhero – as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.
