Fox Searchlight has released the first teaser for Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance), the latest film from Babel and Biutiful helmer Alejandro González Iñárritu. The director’s first black comedy stars Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Ryan and Andrea Riseborough. Keaton plays an actor, famous for having portrayed an iconic superhero, who struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego as he attempts to recover his family, his career and himself. This was a film we had hoped to see in Cannes last month, but Fox Searchlight ultimately set an October 17 release so expect to see this bow at one of the fall festivals.
