Fox Searchlight has released an extended international trailer for Alejandro González Inarritu’s Birdman, the brilliantly bizarre looking feature set to open the upcoming Venice Film Festival.

The film is shot by famed DP Emmanuel Lubezki in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope and meant to look like its one long shot.

The first preview dropped briefly showcasing the ensemble, while this trailer features more of Birdman‘s actual story. Looks awesome and is one of my most anticipated fall movies now.

Inarritu co-wrote the script with Niclas Giacobone and Armando Bo (Biutiful), a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) who once played the title superhero character, struggling to figure out meaning to his life.

Also starring Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis, Andrea Riseborough and Amy Ryan, the film opens on October 17th.

Check out the new, near 3-minute-long trailer below, along with a new poster.

Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) — famous for portraying an iconic superhero – struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.
