Paramount debuted a new full length TV spot for David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button way back during the Olympics that just now made its way online. If you thought the first teaser trailer for Benjamin Button was breathtaking, then just wait until you see this. It presents the film in a whole new light - we finally get some dialogue, and we finally get to see the humorous undertones that Fincher so perfectly works into his films. This also finally shows us a bit more of the story of Benjamin's unusual life and his relationships. Get ready for David Fincher's true masterpiece this Christmas.
I actually saw this TV spot way before I went to the Telluride Film Festival and saw the 20 minute sizzle reel. My opinion on the film has since changed ever so slightly, but I'm still very optimistic. I hope others out there watch this TV spot and still feel like this could be a Fincher masterpiece?
