Coming Christmas Day is David Fincher's latest drama The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The film centers on a man who, at age 50, begins aging backwards, and it stars Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, and Tilda Swinton. Paramount Pictures has released a new international trailer that can be watched below.
The film is 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 opens December 25th, 2008.
