A new TV spot for the upcoming “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, has been released. Poster is already showing up in some theaters and Defamer snapped this photo at a recent multiplex screening and features a shot of Pitt’s face with all the text shown backwards to symbolize the film’s plot.
The movie features Benjamin Button, played by Brad Pitt, as old man who physically ages backward – ages in reverse until he becomes a baby and then finally vanishes from the earth. At age 50, he falls in love with a 30-year-old woman, Cate Blanchett. And then must come to terms with the relationship as they literally grow in opposite directions.
The film is directed by David Fincher, (Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, Zodiac). The screenplay was penned by Oscar winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Horse Whisperer, Spielberg’s Munich, The Good Shepherd). This story was originally adapted from a short story written by legendary writer F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1922.
“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is scheduled to hit theaters on December 25th.
