Update: The Curious Trailer for Benjamin Button


Sure to be an Oscar contender alongside Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, Paramount Pictures has debuted the new trailer for David Fincher’s fantasy-drama The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in theaters with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull this weekend.

The film, opening December 19, is adapted from the classic 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man (Brad Pitt) who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. A man, like any of us, unable to stop time. We follow his story set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the twenty-first century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man’s life can be.

Co-starring Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Taraji P. Henson, Jason Flemyng, Elias Koteas and Julia Ormond, “Benjamin Button” is a time traveler’s tale of the people and places he bumps into along the way, the loves he loses and finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.

A Spanish version of the trailer is already online and can be watched using the player below for now, while the official site is up at BenjaminButton.com.

UPDATE: The studio has removed the trailer from YouTube. Stay tuned for when the official English version is released online.
