Side-by-side: The visual similarities between Birdman and Black Swan

Side-by-side: The visual similarities between <i>Birdman</i> and <i>Black Swan</i>

Though Black Swan was directed by Darren Aronofsky and Birdman was helmed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, it's pretty easy to see similarities between the two Oscar nominated (Birdman won the Oscar for Best Picture too) films. Miguel Branco noticed the similarities and created this video showing it off side by...

Las curiosas similitudes visuales entre Birdman y Black Swan

Las curiosas similitudes visuales entre <i>Birdman</i> y <i>Black Swan</i>

Se estrenaron con 4 años de diferencia, Black Swan, dirigida por Darren Aronofsky, en el 2010 y Birdman , dirigida por Alejandro González Iñárritu, el año pasado. Sin embargo, ambas no solo comparten un lenguaje visual muy parecido, también parte de la trama y el tormento de los personajes. Lo puedes ver debajo.

This Artist Has Turned the Movie Poster Into a Science

This Artist Has Turned the Movie Poster Into a Science

If you want to master something, do it a lot. Artist Scott Saslow took that to heart when he, a couple years ago, embarked on a project to create one movie poster a day. Now, he’s still making posters, and his work is incredible—minimal but iconic, made with a deft awareness of exactly how to translate a film into a single arresting image.

Scott Saslow was generous enough to share some of...

Hugh Jackman sobre <i>Birdman</i>: haría de Wolverine "hasta que me muera"

Birdman, el fantástico film de Alejandro González Iñárritu, se acaba de alzar con 4 Oscars . Su crítica de fondo a las películas de superhéroes de Hollywood ha dejado a muchos pensando, entre ellos Hugh Jackman, quien en realidad es lo más parecido a un Keaton/Riggan/Birdman real. ¿Qué opina Jackman de la película?

Sesame Street's Birdman Spoof Is Absolutely Spot-On

Sesame Street's <i>Birdman</i> Spoof Is Absolutely Spot-On

What if instead of being haunted by the fictional superhero Birdman, an actor was being stalked by his alter ego, Big Bird? That's the premise of this absolutely perfect spoof from Sesame Street, "Big Birdman," featuring Caroll Spinney.

Birdman Deserves This Action Figure Even More Than An Academy Award

<i>Birdman</i> Deserves This Action Figure Even More Than An Academy Award

Yeah, winning the Academy Award for Best Picture is nice and all, but I bet what director Alejandro González Iñárritu and star Michael Keaton were really hoping for was a sweet toyline for the film. At least they have this majestic fake toy commercial to show them what might have been.

Birdman Inspired Hugh Jackman to Play Wolverine "Until I Die"

<i>Birdman </i>Inspired Hugh Jackman to Play Wolverine "Until I Die"

If we see a dozen more movies with Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, we'll have this year's best picture, Birdman, to thank. In an interview with Cigar Aficionado, Jackman spoke from the perspective of watching Birdman as an actual actor with an iconic superhero role. And the movie may have struck much closer to home for him than for others.

Jackman told the magazine:

I said to my wife, 'The moral is...

Original Birdman Ending Could Have Starred Johnny Depp

Original <i>Birdman</i> Ending Could Have Starred Johnny Depp

We really enjoyed Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, and the ending certainly left us with a lot of questions. However, the original ending would have been a bit more finite and even furthered one of the themes of Hollywood's obsession with ego and fame. Oh, and it would have featured Johnny Depp.

Over on the Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith (a very clever podcast that speaks with all sort of...

The 2015 Oscar Nominations Have A Lot Of Good And A Lot Of Bad

The 2015 Oscar Nominations Have A Lot Of Good And A Lot Of Bad

The 2015 Academy Award nominations are out, and they are actually pretty surprising. How the hell did The Lego Movie not get best animated feature? Meanwhile, Birdman is cleaning house with nine nominations, while it looks like Selma got the big snub.

I'm equally surprised the Birdman score wasn't nominated for an Oscar (although I believe it was disqualified). Ugh, whatever.

Lil Wayne's Label Sues Tidal for "Desperate and Illegal" Album Debut

Birdman has been busy. In addition to allegedly plotting to murder his former collaborator Lil Wayne, his record label Cash Money is suing Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service for putting out Lil Wayne’s most recent album without permission, according to TMZ.

When Lil Wayne released the unimaginative but appropriately named The Free Weezy Album on Tidal this month, it was a flagrant fuck you to...

Here's the Birdman/Harvey Birdman Crossover We've Been Wanting

Here's the <i>Birdman/</i>Harvey Birdman Crossover We've Been Wanting

For some of us, it was hard to ignore the fact that Academy Award-winner Birdman immediately conjured images of a different masked character than the one who spoke to Michael Keaton's Riggan Thomson. Well, When No One Gets Your Cosplay (or the unexpected virtue of ignorance) has arrived to put both characters together. Warning: Some NSFW language.
