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.» Related Link: Apple: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
