Ready to meet Birdman? In this look at what happens to an aging actor made iconic for playing a legendary character (the titular Birdman), a lot goes down. Michael Keaton plays the star in question, Riggan Thomson, who's now trying to jump-start his career by starring in a play, and the movie follows the days leading up to his debut. There are make-outs (starring Emma Stone ), fistfights (starring shirtless  Edward Norton ), and concerned looks from Zach Galifianakis . The new trailer definitely succeeds in making me want to see more, especially knowing this is a comedy from director Alejandro González Iñárritu, who's best known for 21 Grams and Babel. Wrap your mind around that and watch the trailer — the film comes out Oct. 17.
Check out the first teaser trailer below.
