It’s been a long time between David Fincher movies, especially since Panic Room felt more like a tossed off side project than a real film. The wait is almost over – Zodiac, Fincher’s take on the real life (and never caught) Zodiac killer – is just a few months away. In fact, the countdown starts now, as JoBlo has the official teaser poster premiere. Click the image above to see the whole thing.

Early buzz on Zodiac is that it’s very strong and that performances are very good – but it’s still being released in January. I am choosing to see this as a sign that the movie release date wisdom has been shifting ever since January was revealed to be a treasure trove for horror films. Unfortunately I don’t think Fincher’s reportedly 2+ hour period piece that spans decades and never wraps up the case will be exactly what the crowd that made White Noise a hit will be looking for.

Let’s hope the good folks at Paramount know what they’re doing with this one.
