Plot Summary: Birdman or "The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance" is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Keaton) ? famous for portraying an iconic superhero ? as he 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.
One is easily the most anticipated movie of the season; the other is anticipated only by Keanu Reeves fans. But which one will actually turn out to be the best movie of the week: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's meta-comedy Birdman starring Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, and Edward Norton? Or John Wick, with Reeves back as an action superstar?
Plus, DVDs, the biggest news straight from Hollywood, and of course the top flicks for the weekend!
