The 71st Venice Film Festival opened earlier today with the world premiere of Alejandro G. Iñárritu's newest film, “Birdman.” Naturally, accompanying the screening was a red carpet and a photocall featuring Iñárritu as well as the cast of “Birdman” along with other celebrities.
In the gallery below then you will find the likes of Michael Keaton, who leads the cast, along with pictures of Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, and more. Certainly, everyone appears to be having an enjoyable time at the festivities. Check them out for yourself and see what you think.
As for the film itself, in the HitFix review of “Birdman,” Catherine Bray gives the movie an “A-” rating. She writes that it “offers several sure bets come Oscar season,” and that while it may not win the Oscar for Best Picture, she would “be genuinely shocked if it wasn't nominated.“
The Venice Film Festival continues to run through September 6th and we will have more coverage of the films and red carpets as they happen.
