Is This Real Or Are You Making A Film?

I've been hearing things about Birdman for a while now, but I hadn't really been paying attention until this full trailer appeared. Michael Keaton has been on a steady incline back into the public mind the last few years, with rolls in The Other Guys, Toy Story 3, and Robocop, but it looks like he's giving the performance of his career in this footage.

It's a solidly meta story - a guy who was famous for playing a comic book character thirty years ago sees his career stall, and tries to be taken seriously again as an actor. Thing is, if Birdman is as good as it looks, no matter what happens in film, Keaton can expect some renewed attention (and never not earned or deserved) his way. The film from Alejandro González Iñárritu co-stars Edward Norton and Emma Stone, and opens on October 17th.
