Alejandro González Iñárritu takes on the black comedy genre, with surreal and pretty amazing looking results, if we go by the first trailer released today for his Birdman.
Michael Keaton plays a washed up former comic book movie actor (his claim to fame: Birdman) who’s now resorting to starring in a play on Broadway. Not bad at all, but clearly nothing like his glory days, which he seems to remember in graphic flashbacks as he apparently descends into madness in the days leading up to opening night.
How cool does that metal bird look? The whole thing, in fact, looks rather like something I need to see as soon as possible.
