Birdman

This isn’t to be confused with the wildly entertaining animated TV series ‘Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law’. (And now that theme song is stuck in my head) No this is a bit different.

I’ve always been a huge Michal Keaton fan. From ‘Night Shift’ to ‘Gung Ho’, ‘Mr. Mom’ to ‘Batman’ and ‘Multiplicty’ (not to mention ‘Beetlejuice’) I always enjoy his performances. This harkens back to some of those older performances with a bit of a twist.

“…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.”

I think this is a brilliant idea and they have assembled a wonderful cast. It’s a dark comedy which isn’t to everyone’s tastes but for those who do get that humor, this will be a smash hit.

 

 

 

I had heard a little about this film a while ago which peaked my interests. After seeing the trailer I am fully onboard for this one. I can’t wait to get my eyeballs on this movie in October.
