Struggling to stay relevant and accept his fledging celebrity, the man behind the titular Birdman, Riggan Thomson (Keaton), neglects the Broadway play he is working on to focus on his comeback. His methods? Howling in the street, walking briskly through Times Square (with just his undies on) and other such antics.
Director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s stellar cast includes Emma Stone, Edward Norton and Zach Galifianakis. The film is a satirical tale of celebrity and change, which opened the Venice Film Festival this year.
"Birdman" opens in select theaters on October 17. Watch the clip below.
