Birdman: Official Trailer

Here is the first official trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s newest film, Birdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), starring Michael Keaton. I recently had a chance to read an early draft of the script for the film and it was pretty amazing. The dark comedy is razor sharp and successfully lampoons the entertainment industry like no other film I’ve seen. Judging from the trailer you can also add eclectically beautiful to that list. It’s definitely a film you shouldn’t miss. Enjoy!


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.
