“I too am not a bit tamed—I too am untranslatable; I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.” —Walt Whitman

Michael Keaton isn’t mid-sneeze in the photo above from Birdman. Actually, he’s executing the fierce war cry of Birdman, the iconic movie superhero who his character, Riggan Thomson, was famous for—before walking away from the role after Birdman III 20 years ago. In the new film, directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Riggan has bet everything he has on adapting, directing, and starring in a Broadway play based on Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. He too wants to make one final barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world, to prove his worth, not only to critics and his daughter, but himself. READ FULL STORY

'Birdman' composer reveals how he made the film's crazy, drum-heavy soundtrack

Birdman greets theatergoers today, and it does so with a score that sounds not unlike two hours of silverware tumbling down a staircase. (In the best way.)

Director Alejandro González Iñárritu and sound designer Martín Hernández opted for a soundtrack composed almost entirely of percussion to amp up film’s tension and give them greater flexibility with pacing. The man they recruited to make those noises was multiple-Grammy winning jazz drummer Antonio Sanchez, who worked closely with the pair as he riffed and clanged his way through the movie’s sonic backdrop. He explained to EW how the score came together. READ FULL STORY

'Birdman' trailer: Michael Keaton brings his superhero baggage to the stage

BIRDMAN-TEASER.jpg

There’s still a lot of love out there for Michael Keaton, who was an A-list superstar in the 1980s when he starred in Mr. Mom, Beetlejuice, and Batman, among other hits. Today, he’s more of a character actor who does voice acting for Pixar films and lends some manic energy to movies like Need for Speed.

But for better and worse, he’ll always be Batman. It’s a shadow that follows any actor who dons a cape and mask for a modern Hollywood franchise — which makes Keaton the perfect star for Birdman, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s upcoming drama about an actor forever linked to a superhero role who tries to resurrect his talent and fame in a Broadway play.

The trailer looks — and sounds — great, with Keaton’s agitated actor making his way to the stage for his entrance and asking himself, “How did we end up here — in this dump? You were a movie star, remember?”

Is he wallowing in self-pity? Or just getting himself into character? Watch the clip below: READ FULL STORY
