Below is the international trailer for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. This pretty much snuck up on everyone, arriving unannounced before screenings of Indiana Jones and being in Spanish. There’s very little dialogue in it though, so it can still be enjoyed.
As if this film wasn’t intriguing enough already (David Fincher! Brad Pitt! Cate Blanchett! An old man who ages backwards and meets woman half way, aging in the opposite direction!), this trailer brings our intrigue and interest right up to excitement and anticipation.
There is a beautifully old-fashioned and gothic feel to this, with the music really adding to it. The shots included seem to show a lot of the story, but I’ve no doubt that Fincher still has plenty of surprises in store. Pitt and Blanchett are a quality pairing, and solid support is from Tilda Swinton, Julia Ormond (remember her?!) and Elias Koteas. And did we mention Fincher??
Downside? The film’s not out til December.
