Watch: 'Birdman Returns' Teaser Is a Super 90s Throwback to Michael Keaton's 'Batman' Years

Alejandro González Iñárritu’s super meta "Birdman" stars Michael Keaton as Riggin Thomson, a has-been movie star who is trying to stage a comeback.
Fox Searchlight has just released this hilarious teaser trailer for a fictional "Birdman Returns," which, much like the film itself, no doubt capitalizes on Keaton’s own career history.
The teaser is reminiscent of the dark and dramatic, Don LaFontaine-narrated trailers of the ’90s, and bears a humorously striking resemblance to the trailer for Keaton’s 1992 sequel "Batman Returns."
