Film is latest from '21 Grams' director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

The first trailer for Birdman has been revealed.

The movie stars Michael Keaton as a washed-up actor who played an iconic super hero earlier in his career but now finds himself in need of a revival. This opportunity comes via a Broadway play and the film follows him as he attempts to over come family problems and issues inside himself to pull off the comeback.

Birdman is the latest film from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, who has previously directed 21 Grams, Babel and Amores Perros . It will also star Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Andrea Riseborough and Naomi Watts.

The trailer, see below, features a slowed down version of Gnarls Barkley’s Number One hit ‘Crazy.’ The song then speeds up as the trailer progresses.

The film opens in cinemas in October, 2014.
