The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Trailer #2 Starring Brad Pitt in Glorious Quicktime HD

In case you haven’t seen it yet, the second official trailer for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is now online in Quicktime HD. Directed by David Fincher, and starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, this is a strange little fairy tale about a man who ages backwards. I know there were some negative reports from the footage that was shown at the Telluride Film Festival last month, but it’s pretty hard to second guess it after seeing this new trailer.

The film looks absolutely gorgeous, and it reminds me of a cross between Charlie Kaufman, Tim Burton and Forrest Gump (if that makes any sense). Paramount has supposedly been feuding with Fincher over the long running time, but the story seems deserving of an epic length if you ask me. Can’t wait to see it… this movie is one of many that will hit theatres on Christmas Day.

  • I trust Fincher (and pray to the Movie Gods that the new Heavy Metal gets made) so I’ll probably be there. Brad Pitt’s southern accent is a bit unconvincing he didn’t really say alot so who knows.

    I agree that the cinematography was luscious. I’m glad Fincher went digital again.


  • I’ve seen this and the other trailer several times now, and I have to say– I just don;t get it. I have no interest in this one.

    I trust in Fincher, but this looks pretty weird

  • That’s sort of how I feel. I think he can be self-indulgent at times (See: over-use of CG in “Panic Room”.)

    And it doesn’t help that I think Brad Pitt is an abysmal actor.

    I can’t help but drool over the potential of the blu-ray release!!! This will win best cinematography at the academy awards.
