Michael Keaton Gets Awesomely Meta In 'Birdman' Trailer

June 13th, 2014 3:38pm EDT
Birdman
Michael Keaton, a washed-up actor who is famous for playing a superhero, will play a washed-up actor famous for playing a superhero in Birdman.

Alright, so it's not fair to call Michael Keaton "washed-up" - although it's difficult to name a great movie he's starred in from the last two decades. If Birdman lives up to its bizarre trailer, it could spark the return of a great actor (a Beetlejuice sequel would be great, too).

As previously mentioned, Keaton will play Riggan Thomson, an actor famous for playing superhero Birdman. Thomson fights to stay in the business after a not-so-graceful ...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Men in Black III,' 'Moonrise Kingdom' & More

May 21st, 2012 1:00pm EDT
Men in Black
I didn’t end up watching “Battleship” last week, because I wasn’t in the mood to knowingly subject myself to a bad movie that night. Friends who caught it, told me that it’s as terrible as they thought it would be, giving it a D grade. Critic Matt Patches hilariously called it “as stiff and lifeless as the plastic pieces used to play (the board game).” After hearing things like that I’m glad I didn’t bother with “Battleship.”

This week includes the release of the highly anticipated blockbuster “Men in Black III,” but I’m more interested in Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” since it feature...

Based on the strength of both men's abilities it was a logical move to pair them together again on-screen in the drama "Stone." Their previous collaboration "The Score" proved that they work well as opposing forces.

Unfortunately for "Stone," the presence of powerhouse actors like Norton and De Niro is unable to rescue the film from its...

Edward Norton always gives an intense, researched performance. To play a parole candidate in Stone, he didn’t have to make anything up. Meeting with actual inmates gave him the clues he needed to play the title role.

“The best thing that came out of getting in to talk to these guys was a sense of how they viewed the process of getting judged by other people,” Norton said while promoting the film at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX. “Apart from that, their language is fantastic. I would say 60% of the lines of Stone we changed based on the ways these guys articulate.”
