We've been inundated with new movie trailers lately like the "Dumb and Dumber To" teaser, "The Penguins of Madagascar," Robert Rodriguez's and Frank Miller's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," and "The Interview" starring James Franco and Seth Rogen.
But my favorite among the latest crop of trailers is Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Birdman" starring an intriguing yet exciting Michael Keaton. This could be his comeback movie that we've all been waiting for. It's a comedy-drama from the "Babel," "21 Grams," and "Biutiful" director about a former superhero actor (Keaton) who wants to revive his career by going on Broadway. The great white way could be his only great white hope of redemption.
This movie is fitting for Keaton who starred in the "Batman" movies by Tim Burton. His star is fading, a former superhero actor, but instead of starring on Broadway, he gives us "Birdman."
I can't wait to see the film!
Emma Stone, Zach Galafianakis, Amy Ryan, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough and Naomi Watts costar. "Birdman" flies into theaters on October 17.
See the moody trailer below:

Tom Cruise returns to the big screen for the sci-fi adventure “Edge of Tomorrow.” Emily Blunt co-stars for the Doug Liman directed flick. Death becomes both a novelty and a necessity in the film but before you say kill me now, hear this, it’s one of the best action movies you’ll see this year! Why? Find out in my review below.
Official “Edge of Tomorrow” Synopsis
The epic action of "Edge of Tomorrow" unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dyingagain...and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.(C) Warner Bros

I was so happy to see Famke Janssen aka Jean Grey aka Phoenix up on the big screen in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” So I was excited to talk to the actress about the popular franchise. In this interview, we talked about her participation in “Days of Future Past,” if her character has more narrative to explore, the socio-political issues of the “X-Men” franchise, her love for Wolverine, what she knows about “X-Men: Apocalypse,” and what would be her favorite mutant power. Take a look (NOTE: In the middle of the interview, the satellite went haywire and created a momentary hiss…sorry!):

It’s finally here – the long-awaited reimagining of “Sleeping Beauty” as told from the point of view of the self-proclaimed “Mistress of All Evil.” Angelina Jolie rocks as Maleficent and Elle Fanning is enchanting as Aurora aka Sleeping Beauty but is the movie worth your time and money? Take a look at my movie review of “Maleficent.” Oh by the way, just call me MannyFicent
