One Last Wonderful International Benjamin Button Trailer
by Alex Billington
November 24, 2008
It was nearly two months ago when we last featured a full trailer for David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Today we have one more final trailer for what looks to be one of the most enchanting films this year. Every time I watch a new trailer for this, I feel like I'm going to cry. It's easy to compare Benjamin Button to Forrest Gump, not only because it was written by the same screenwriter, but because the story has a lot of similarities. Some early reviews have started to trickle in that claim it's a "historic achievement, a masterful piece of cinema, and a moving treatise on death, loss, loneliness and love."
If you love Alexandre Desplat's beautiful score in this trailer as much as I do, then you're in luck. You can listen to the whole soundtrack over on Warner Brothers' BAFTA site (just click on "Score"). Anne Thompson's review on Variety (that we quoted above) goes on to say that "the movie is sadly beautiful, of a piece, as impeccably wrought as its ornate clock that runs counterclockwise." Give this final trailer a quick run through and let us know if Benjamin Button is still on your list of films to see to Oscar season.
Watch the last international trailer for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is directed by visionary filmmaker David Fincher, of Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, and Zodiac previously. The screenplay was penned by Oscar winner Eric Roth, of Forrest Gump, The Horse Whisperer, Spielberg's Munich, and The Good Shepherd. This story was originally adapted from a short story written by legendary writer F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1922. Paramount will debut The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in theaters everywhere on December 25th, Christmas Day.
