Curious Case of Benjamin Button in 2008

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by David Fincher is a movie adaptation of the 1922 short story "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The film is starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.
Benjamin Button is set for a release in November 2008.

Brad Pitt in the role of Benjamin ButtonThe plot:
"In the early 20th century, a 80-year-old man (Brad Pitt) is born aging backwards, causing complications when he falls in love with a 30 year old woman (Cate Blanchett). Fincher said, 'It's dark, it's romantic, and it also deals with mortality in a pretty unflattering way. The guy is born in 1919 - with the film itself beginning in world war I, travelling around the world and carrying on all the way through to the year 2000.'" (Source: Wikipedia)

Searching for more information about the Curious Case of Benjamin Button I found those two really interesting magazine scans. Though I can't determine where they come from I'm sure they're authentic :
(click on a scan to enlarge it, really, should do it: it's worth reading the text of the pictures!)

That's a really strange movie! I'm surprised that Brad Pitt is in it. If he made this bet we can be but sure that the movie is great!

Dave Fincher + Brad Pitt = Seven & Fight Club, of course Brad would jump at the chance of doing this flick. He does some of his best stuff with Fincher. I couldn't be less suprised he's in this movie. Can't wait to see it!!!

Haven't seen the trailer yet, but I did send Brad and Angelina a signed copy of my children's book, Benny's Burgeritis, because the main character, a stuuborn little boy who refuses to eat his vegetables, is named Benny Buttons! The book and letter were never returned, so I am hoping that someone in the Brad-Angelina household is reading! Looking forward to the movie next week!
