Paramount has released the second movie trailer for David Fincher’s The Curious Case on Benjamin Button is now online. I was bit disappointed after seeing 20 minutes of selected scenes from the film at Telluride, but I can’t help getting excited again after seeing this latest television spot.
Watch the trailer in High Definition on Apple.com.
The official plot synopsis: “I was born under unusual circumstances.” And so begins “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: a man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story, set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man’s life can be. Directed by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett with Taraji P. Henson, Tilda Swinton, Jason Flemyng, Elias Koteas and Julia Ormond, “Benjamin Button,” is a grand tale of a not-so-ordinary man and the people and places he discovers along the way, the loves he finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button hits theaters on Christmas Day 2008.
