How meta can you get-a? It’s pretty clear that Birdman was created with Michael Keaton in mind, but man, talk about a bizarro project. This movie looks totally insane, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t both intrigued and excited by these trailers. The soundtrack choices in them alone are worthy of praise. What will Birdman be like? What can we expect? I have no idea! Get me this movie immediately!
Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) comes out October 17, 2014.
