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 ...

Fashion Fails: Kari Hilson, Jennifer Connelly, More

Keri Hilson
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Keri Hilson wore this tight dress to the About Last Night premiere, and we don't love the contrast of magenta and olive green. The patterns are also tacky, almost rug-like.

Amal Fashanu wore this dress, which has quite a bit going on: there's the brick wall giving way to nature, see-through sleeves, and a furry lump. The dress would be quite beautiful without those last two additions, especially the attached bulge of black fur....

Kristen Stewart also disappointed in a Remm Acra lace dress that didn't do much for her skin tone nor her figure.

Conversely, Jennifer Aniston'...

While Daniel Day-Lewis is this year's one sure bet to win an Oscar for his performance in Lincoln, there's one more near-lock: Jennifer Lawrence should be taking home her first Academy Award for her flawless performance in "Silver Linings Playbook.

It's the second time the 22-year-old star has been nominated in the category in her short career; and don't let her resume -- including films like The Hunger Games, X-Men: First Class and House at the End of the Street fool you. J-Law is the real deal.
