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.
Directed by Alejandro Iñárritu, and also starring Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts.
In theaters October 17, 2014
As reported previously, Birdman has nothing to do with the Hanna Barbera character of the same name, despite seemingly sharing a somewhat similar sense of humor with the Harvey Birdman cartoon.
