The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Wow. In the interest of full disclosure, I have to say that I'm somewhat a David Fincher fanboy. It's no surprise that the film I'm looking forward to most this year is what looks to be his most romantic film yet, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which reunites him with Brad Pitt, who plays a man who ages backwards. The second trailer for the film has been released on Apple's trailer website and I suggest you check it out.

On a side note, I think I've come around to like how digital looks nowadays. Granted, Fincher's films are always superbly lit and colored, but something about the patina seen on this trailer makes digital beautiful. It's not the beauty of celluloid, but something all it's own. Perhaps it's how close digital cinema has come to large format photography; the trailer looks like a Gregory Crewdson chromira print.
