Michael Keaton is getting all sorts of crazy buzz for his role in Birdman. He covers the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly with the “nails it” headline that says, “The movie that will change his career, but first it will blow your mind.”
That much clearly can be seen from the wild Birdman trailer!
Keaton stars as a has-been actor, who was previously known for playing a superhero to blockbuster success. After a long career drought, he heads to Broadway with the hope of reviving his career with a knockout performance on the Great White Way.
The all-star cast that supports Keaton is stellar and several of them get to show off in two new clips that Fox Searchlight has released. In this first one, we meet Emma Stone as Edward Norton and Keaton have a few choice words.
The next clip features Norton and Keaton going for coffee. The film also stars Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Ryan and Andrea Riseborough.

Fox Searchlight also released a series of fantastical Birdman posters. Check them out in the slideshow below.
