Benjamin Button Teaser Goes Live

Brad Pitt is showing his age

It’s been a long time coming but netheads have finally been given the chance to check out the teaser trailer for David Fincher’s upcoming modern fable The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button. Click below to take a look or click here.

It appears the Fight Club director has been poring over the work of Jean-Pierre Jeunet as it’s all looking rather City Of Lost Children – but we reckon that can’t be a bad thing.

The movie, adapted from the classic 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, finds Brad Pitt playing a character who was “born under unusual circumstances” – a man who enters the world in his eighties and ages backwards. The story begins in New Orleans at the end of World War I and follows Button’s backwards trajectory into the 21st Century.

Fincher’s follow-up to Zodiac also stars Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Jason Flemyng, Elias Koteas and Julia Ormond. It’s due to be released in the new year, although no UK date has been confirmed yet.
