New BIRDMAN Behind The Scenes Featurette Released

EW was provided with a new behind the scenes tour for Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Birdman that you can check out here! This video takes us behind the scenes with all the cast and crew as they take you through ‘Manhattan’s St. James Theatre’ and ‘Riggan’s mind’. Check it out!


Birdman was released in theaters on October 17, 2014 and it has already racked up many awards. It got five at the 71st Venice International Film Festival and two at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. This film stars Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, and it's said to be a solid Oscar contender. Thanks to EW.com, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, the director of the film, gives us a behind the scenes tour of the film that you can check out below!


Riggan Thomson (Keaton) is a washed-up Hollywood actor who once played the superhero Birdman in three blockbuster movies, before leaving the multi-billion-dollar franchise. More than 20 years after "Birdman," Riggan wants to reinvent his career by writing, directing, and starring in a play, an adaptation of Raymond Carver's short story What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. The play is produced by Riggan's best friend/lawyer Jake (Galifianakis), and stars Riggan's girlfriend Laura, first-time-Broadway-actress Lesley (Watts), and Mike (Norton). Riggan's daughter Sam (Stone), a recovering drug addict, serves as his spunky, bedraggled assistant. In order to afford Mike as a replacement actor (after Riggan supposedly tries to kill the first actor by causing a spotlight to fall on him during a rehearsal), Riggan refinances a house that should belong to his daughter, Sam, rendering him flat broke. Throughout all of this, Riggan is mocked and bolstered by his voice as Birdman, which is associated with a "Birdman 3" movie poster in his dressing room.
