Ready to meet Birdman? In this look at what happens to an aging actor made iconic for playing a legendary character (the titular Birdman), a lot goes down. Michael Keaton plays the star in question, Riggan Thomson, who's now trying to jump-start his career by starring in a play, and the movie follows the days leading up to his debut. There are make-outs (starring Emma Stone), fistfights (starring shirtless Edward Norton), and concerned looks from Zach Galifianakis. The new trailer definitely succeeds in making me want to see more, especially knowing this is a comedy from director Alejandro González Iñárritu, who's best known for 21 Grams and Babel. Wrap your mind around that and watch the trailer — the film comes out Oct. 17.

Check out the first teaser trailer below.
