The very first trailer for David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button has finally debuted online! This first played in front of showings of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, so I'm sure most people have at least seen it once, but you must watch it again. This is undeniably one of the greatest trailers I've ever seen in my entire life. It's up there with the first trailer for 300. The best part is that I believe this will also turn out to be a phenomenal film. If you need a refresher, go back and read this post that I wrote back in January. David Fincher is an amazing director and I think we might finally see his masterpiece this December. From Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button and Cate Blanchett as Daisy to David Fincher and screenwriter Eric Roth, everything about this is absolutely perfect.
I first wrote about this trailer after it debuted, and have since come to appreciate it even more. It's definitely a piece of art and I think it only goes to show how phenomenal the film will eventually be. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button has shot to the top of my most anticipated list and I will be following it very closely throughout the next few months. Please let us know what you think of the trailer!
