A stunningly gorgeous high definition version of the trailer for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button went up at Apple the other day, and I’ve meant to write about it since then. I’ve watched it a couple times daily since it appeared, and the last time tonight made me realize that not helping to publicize this could be criminal. David Fincher looks to have made a very beautiful, odd movie if nothing else. Let the images below speak for themselves.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, directed by David Fincher from a script by Eric Roth (from the F. Scott Fitzgerald story) and starring Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton opens December 19. Count the days. Count them backward if such a thing feels appropriate.
