Academy Award winner for Best Picture, Birdman, opened in selected cinemas on Wednesday in Metro Manila, after winning the Oscar in Hollywood on February 23.
The movie also won Best Director for Alejandro González Iñárritu, and an Best Actor Nomination for lead actor Michael Keaton.
In an interview, Keaton said that Birdman is one of the “most challenging and rewarding experiences” of his career.
Along with a very impressive cast in Emma Stone, Naomi Watts and Edward Norton, Keaton stars in the movie as Riggan Thomson, an actor who once starred as “Birdman,” a comic book superhero, which brought him fame and wealth but damaged his credibility whilst inflating his ego. He was a huge star but now that star is on the wane.
Birdman is now showing at Robinson’s Ermita, Robinson’s Galleria, Metro East, Gateway, Powerplant, Greenhills and Festival Mall.
