We are die-hard Michael Keaton fans and Birdman (read our glowing review here) was everything we could have wanted – both for a story and for him as an actor. In his latest film, Keaton gets back into the world of journalism, which seems to be a theme. Anyone remember The Paper, or Live From Baghdad?
Everyone knows he’s got the chops for a multitude of dramatic stories, but we would love to see another foray into comedy. Wishful thinking, but we’ll see anything he’s in without fail. So for now, Spotlight looks solid. Enjoy the trailer below…
SPOTLIGHT is a tense investigative thriller, tracing the steps to one of the biggest crime stories in modern times. It tells the riveting true story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe investigation that would rock the city and cause a crisis in one of the world’s oldest and most trusted institutions. When the newspaper’s tenacious “Spotlight” team of reporters delve into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston’s religious, legal, and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world.
Directed by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor), Spotlight stars Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery, and Stanley Tucci. It is scheduled for theatrical release this Fall on November 6, 2015.
