The full trailer for David Fincher's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" has finally been released. slashfilm got a hold of it, and Apple.com has the exclusive HD version. This time around, we get a much larger look at Tilda Swinton's character as well as all of the others, but hers is the most significant addition.
Eric Roth wrote the screenplay, and it shows. The dialogue heard in the trailer sounds like it was scraped off of "Forrest Gump's" dinner plate and has been stored in the refrigerator as leftovers for the last 14 years. That isn't a terrible thing, and it's not even the worst part of the trailer.
We're guessing that the film isn't completely finished, because the sound mix is noticeable and very distracting. They are most likely touching some things up, including the overpowering voices obviously recorded off location.
The effects shots look decent for the extremely old 'Benjamin,' and look very good for everything in between. Although, Brad Pitt does look like he was smothered with land-o-lakes in parts of the film. (Gives butter face a whole new meaning.) Well, at least it looks better than that creepy Orville Redenbacher commercial Fincher directed.
Also worth noting, the film has been given a PG-13 rating, which is a first for Fincher, who has brought us such gruesome films as "Se7en" and "Fight Club." The film will be released on Christmas Day.
