Fincher's Benjamin Button trailer.

Apparently, David Fincher has been working a long time what will be his third collaboration with actor Brad Pitt, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. But now that I've seen this trailer, I can see where all the hard work has gone. Pitt essentially plays a man who ages backwards, meaning he was born an old man and when he dies he will be a teeny, tiny baby. Maybe even a fetus.

Check it out:

I read the original F. Scott Fitzgerald short story that the movie iss based on when I was a kid. It was more of a concept than an actual story, but it looks like Fincher and Oscar-winning screenwriter Eric Roth have added a lot to the premise. After the critical drubbing that Fight Club and Panic Room took during their initial release, Fincher took a pretty long hiatus. Last year's Zodiac was really good, even though it was released way too early last year for proper Oscar contention, but if this one comes out around October or November, I can't see why Fincher can't have another shot at a golden statuette or two.
