We haven’t really covered this movie yet here on Screen Rant other than in my recent post on new movie posters, and there are a lot of folks that don’t know much about it. In that post are the two brand new posters for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button; one featuring Brad Pitt and the other, Cate Blanchett.
Although I don’t expect sky-high box office results from this flick and I can’t see it hitting the younger teenager demographic, I have high hopes for it. The trailers show off a very high quality heartfelt film that will no doubt be a big player in next year’s Academy Awards - and I look forward to seeing it over the holidays.
Watch and see what you think:
The film is directed by David Fincher and is adapted from a 1922 short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. You probably figured out the plot from the trailer so I won’t explain it. If you’ve seen the posters before seeing any trailers, the reversed text on Brad Pitt’s probably makes more sense now.
What do you think of trailer? Are you interested in this film?
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button opens this Christmas Day, December 25th 2008.
