One pleasant surprise that came with Indiana Jones last night was the first trailer for David Fincher’s new movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. It’s not too often nowadays that a trailer plays on the big screen before it hits the web, but in this case it was kind of exciting. Unfortunately, it’s still not yet available online, with the exception of this Spanish language version on YouTube.
I’ll update this post with a proper English trailer once it arrives, but in the meantime, feast your eyes on the strange visuals of Brad Pitt, aging backwards! In some ways this feels like a Charlie Kaufman movie, but it’s based on a 1922 short story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby). I can’t wait to see more. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is scheduled for release on December 19th; check out the trailer below.
Update: I have posted the English version of the trailer here.
