Watch: Michael Keaton Answers Absurd Questions In Clip From Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman’ Plus New Pics

Movies probably won’t get more meta this year than Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “Birdman.” The film centers on a former superhero movie star who mounts a comeback via the Broadway stage. Playing the lead role is Michael Keaton, the former Batman actor, who easily has his juiciest lead role in years. By all accounts, “Birdman” goes far beyond it’s winky premise to deliver one of the best movies of 2014 (read our review).

Today, you can get a little preview of what to expect with the first clip from the film. Here we see Keaton’s Riggan Thomson in the midst of press interviews, facing a barrage of inane questions ranging from his thoughts on Barthes to whether or not he gets semen injections. Naturally, he’s a bit overwhelmed. After that, you can check out some new pics from the film.

Co-starring Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis and more,”Birdman” opens on October 17th. Watch below. [The Daily Beast/HitFix]
