Birdman (Michael Keaton)

Alejandro González Iñárritu hasn't released a full-length film since 2010's "Biutiful," so there's been plenty of anticipation for this year's "Birdman"--especially after it didn't quite make it to Cannes this spring. Expect to see it at Telluride and/or Toronto. 

The inscrutable first trailer for the film showed Michael Keaton struggling as a jaded actor performing on Broadway long after the glory days of the superhero character he originated on film--and raised more questions than it answered.  Why is Michael Keaton running around New York City in his underwear?  And who the heck is Birdman, anyway?  "We don’t want to give away too much," Keaton said of the first trailer. "This thing will keep unveiling itself."

Turns out Keaton's character, Riggin Thomson, once played the superhero Birdman, a role that made him famous but which now haunts him as his nerves fray before the Broadway premiere of Raymond Carver's "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love," which Thomson directed and is starring in.  Edward Norton (who makes an appearance in his underwear as well) co-stars as an actor in the play, and Emma Stone plays Thomson's daughter.  Rounding out the cast are Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis and Amy Ryan.

Check out five new images of the film via Entertainment Weekly, plus a very neat first poster.
