Fox Searchlight and New Regency have released an official trailer for upcoming black comedy Birdman, starring Michael Keaton.

The promo, which combines an extraordinary imagery and a top-notch soundtrack, offers a glimpse of Keaton as Riggan Thomson, an actor famous for portraying iconic superhero Birdman. The film, directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu (Biutiful, Babel, Amores Perros), tells the story of Thomson’s struggle to return to the spotlight, as he mounts a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim his past glory.

Rodeo FX delivered almost 90 minutes of VFX for this movie that has already created an Oscar Buzz in the industry and on the Internet. Our work includes CG creatures, props, vehicles and destruction, as well as extensive and seamless plate stitching. A considerable technical and artistic challenge!

Birdman, which also stars Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2, Crazy, Stupid, Love), Edward Norton (Fight Club, American History X), ZachGalifianakis (The Hangover I, II & III) and Naomi Watts (Diana, The Impossible) opens across North America on October 17.
