Posters and New Images from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

David Fincher’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is either going to be really, really good and get nominated for a lot of awards, or it’ll go the way of Brad Pitt’s other movie, “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward John Ford”, and really, how many people saw that one, despite all the good press it got? As I recall, the film didn’t really get nominated for a whole lot of awards, either, but did make a star out of Casey Affleck, so that was a plus. Anyways, David Fincher’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” stars Brad Pitt as a guy name Benjamin Button who, er, ages backwards. Which means he’s born old and wrinkled and then “ungrows” into Brad Pitt. Yeah, happens to me all the time after a couple of drinks.

“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, 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, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is a time traveler’s tale of the people and places he bumps into along the way, the loves he loses and finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.

Starring Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Julia Ormond, Elias Koteas, Jason Flemyng, Taraji P. Henson, Josh Stewart, Faune A. Chambers, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, and directed by David Fincher.
