Keaton stars with a top cast that includes Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts and Amy Ryan.
Keaton plays Riggan Thomson, a down-on-his-luck actor once know for his own superhero role. He tries to stage a comeback in a Broadway play.
He must contend with a self-important actor (Norton) who tries to take over the play. Check out Ed in his skivvies in the trailer!
The dark comedy, directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, is actually a character study the probes Thomson’s descent into a world he never thought he’d inhabit and his attempt to scratch his way back.
“How did we end up here… in this dump,” Keaton’s character says in a voice-over opening the clip. “You were a movie star, remember?”
Judging from the trailer the movie will be scatological and filled with eccentric characters. In short, it’s a perfect film for Keaton.
