"Birdman," which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall, has a fabulous cast that includes Emma Stone as Riggan's daughter, plus Edward Norton, Amy Ryan, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, and Andrea Riseborough. The Oscar-nominated Iñárritu is no slouch, but another aspect of the film's production has piqued our interest. Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, who picked up an Oscar for his mind-bending work on "Gravity," filmed "Birdman" in such a way that it appears to be one long take, with no cuts. That's not to say there aren't cuts at all, just that it will look like it was shot in one take; either way, it's an impressive feat of filmmaking.
Plus, we're psyched to see Michael Keaton return to the screen in a major way. There's definitely some metatextual stuff happening here, given Keaton's previous performances at Batman in Tim Burton's take on the Dark Knight. Some would even argue that Keaton's Batman is as great or even better than Christian Bale's performance.
In any case, check out this trailer with your headphones on, as it's got some swears in it.
"Birdman" will fly into theaters on October 17.
