Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ready give audiences the bird(man)…
Fox Searchlight has released the international trailer for the 50-year-old Mexican filmmaker’s black comedy Birdman, which will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
Michael Keaton leads the ensemble cast that includes Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Ryan and Andrea Riseborough.
He portrays an actor, famous for having portrayed an iconic superhero, who struggles to mount a Broadway play.
Birdman marks a big departure from González Iñárritu’s more gritty and dramatic fare, including Babel, 21 Grams and Biutiful.
“It’s inventive and light” and full of surprises, says one of the film’s critics.
