Let it be know that it’s not just mega-studios who are guilty of tossing out microteasers for their films. With Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s “Birdman (Or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” coming up, Fox Searchlight is providing the first clip. Just don’t blink, you might miss it.
Running a scant fifteen seconds, it’s still a pretty entertaining tease, with Michael Keaton and Emma Stone — playing father and daughter — in the midst of an argument about social media. It’s fun stuff, from a film that never stops moving. A picture we raved about in our review as, “an endlessly surprising, inventive movie,” it looks like Iñárritu has taken the story of an actor on the comeback trail, to try and reinvent cinema itself. Needless to say, this is probably one of the most ambitious movies of the fall.
“Birdman” opens on October 17th. And be sure to check out our exclusive listen of the soundtrack.
