    $150 million budget.. My goodness, I just hope they recoup and go on to a big, big pay day. And this movie will be going up against Tom Cruise’s Valkaryl (or whatever) opening Boxing Day, Will Smith’s latest movie, opening a few days earlier and Jennifer Aniston’s Marley and me, opening Christmas Day also. This is going to be one big box office fight and I thionkmthe loser will be J.en Aniston’s rom com.

  • awwww

    This movie will be a huge box office hit and will get many Oscar nominations. I will watch it on Christmas Day.

  • Marcia

    I am excited about this movie, it looks fab! Advanced previews are saying it’s a great, great movie and one predicts 10 Oscar noms!

  • lsam

    This is a wonderful movie. It is rated R. “Marley and Me” is rated PG so each movie including Wil’s and Tom’s will have their own market during the holidays. I’m sure the critics will put it their 50 cents later on. But from the trailer, Brad and the rest of the cast look mesmerizing. I will definitely see this movie on Christmas Day.

  • lurking

    This is THE movie if you want to see one this holiday season!!!!!!!
    So excited!!!! The special effect alone is worth the admision IMO.
    I know the budget of this movie is huge. Hopefully when it’s all said and done, worldwide receipts will recoupe the cost and turn in a little profit for the studio.
    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for major acting awards either from Brad or Angie this year. We fans need to support their movies. If anyone here has not seen Changeling yet, I urge you to go see it. Peace.

    “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”

    Every once in a while comes a film that garners nominations across the board from acting and directing to visual style and effects. This year’s Oscar juggernaut may be “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which will be released Christmas Day. Adapted from a short story of the same name by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the film follows the unique and challenging life of Benjamin Button. Button, played by Brad Pitt, is born in his 80s and ages backwards. The fact that his life runs in the complete opposite direction of all those around him creates unimaginable challenges for Button. The use of computer-generated imaging to handle Button’s uncharacteristic appearances may bring Oscar recognition along with the acting, writing and art direction.

  • catherine

    I can’t wait to watch this wonderful movie.

  • Chris

    Love Brad and Angelina! This movie looks great. Can’t wait to see it. Our family has a tradition of going to the movies on Christmas day and this is the one we chose.

  • jane

    I saw this movie on Sunday at a screening in L.A. It’s the best film I”ve seen this year and probably on my top 5 of all time. Incredible film making on all levels. Cate Blanchett always hits it out of the park with her acting and this is the best I’ve seen Brad Pitt, ever! Go see this wonderful film.

    Brad looks so adorable in the second still of him sitting on the beach playing chess….

    …His golden locks make you wanna just run your hands through its waves….yum…..

    Check out Jimmy Kimmel below making fun of MANISTON’S ‘UNCOOL’ statement by saying that he also has a timeline of when he fell in-love with Brad Pitt….and that he’s revealing it at the risk of having UGLYston mad at him….

    …after the ‘I’m EFFIN Ben Affleck’ video Brad participated in for him….I’m sure he finds CHINNIFER as ridiculous as the rest of Hollywood does!

    Gee, inFuggy, I directed my e-mail at Shitzy yesterday, but apparently I need to repeat it for you ignorant ass as well…

    Here’s another CCOBB review from a Variety critic. I think the one posted this morning was

    Todd McCarthy. This one is Anne Thompson.

    TROLLS – PLEASE NOTE THE LAST PARAGRAPH, SHITZY. DON’T SAY YOU WEREN’T TOLD IN ADVANCE THAT CCOBB ISN’T EXPECTED TO HAVE A $100MIL WEEKEND OR DOMESTIC TOTAL. THIS IS A REALLY, REALLY EXPENSIVE ART FILM. IT’S NOT WILL SMITH FIGHTING ALIENS OR BATMAN OR JAMES BOND. SO
    CHECK YOUR USUAL BULLSHIT AT THE DOOR ON DECEMBER 25 AND DON’T BRING IT ON THE THREAD OR ELSE SANTA IS GOING TO COME TAKE BACK THE LUMP OF COAL HE’S GOING TO LEAVE YOU!

    http://weblogs.variety.com/thompsononhollywood/2008/11/the-curious-cas.html

    I saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on Saturday (following the aborted Thursday screening), and have been trying to sort it out ever since.

    David Fincher and screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump) have delivered an historic achievement, a masterful piece of cinema, and a moving treatise on death, loss, loneliness and love. As the movie proceeds, and Brad Pitt as Button ages backwards, we know where he is headed: it’s where we are all going. But he feels he has to go there by himself, without his loved ones. And nobody wants to die alone. (Here is Todd McCarthy’s review.)

    So when the movie reaches its climax, it is extraordinarily moving (although some find the movie cold and dispassionate). It may pack a more powerful punch the older you are and the more people you have lost. In that case it will score with the Academy, who will also recognize the skillful filmmaking on display.

    The movie marks a seismic shift in terms of what is possible in moviemaking. What Fincher and his team have done is no small technological feat. Button starts off as a CG-aged baby, moves through CG-altered older Pitt faces superimposed on small bodies, and then proceeds to the “real” Pitt wearing makeup and then getting younger and younger. Thus the film’s central performance is in great part a visual effect. (Blanchett is also made younger digitally, but aged with makeup.) That accounts in part for the movie’s high cost (well above $150 million) but is also its primary limitation.

    Thus, while I admire the film’s amazing accomplishment–it’s hard to imagine that anyone but the digitally sophisticated Fincher, who has become adept at “painting” his digital canvases, could have pulled this off–the movie is not entirely satisfying. But given what it is, it’s hard to imagine it being done done any better. The actors are superb, especially Pitt and Cate Blanchett, who should earn Oscar noms. What’s missing has partly to do with the limitations of the technology. Button reminds me of Peter Sellers as Chauncey Gardner in Being There. He’s oddly passive and restrained, zen-like as he floats through all the decades, watching, listening, learning. He narrates the tale via his diary, along with his dying love Blanchett. We see him engaging with people, but he never says much. We see him from the outside; we never get under his skin, and we never learn the fruits of his wisdom. He stays much the same.

    Still, the movie is sadly beautiful, of a piece, as impeccably wrought as its ornate clock that runs counterclockwise. Do Paramount and Warner Bros. have a prayer of making their money back? This movie needs all the help it can get, from anyone who loves movies and wants the studios to take more risky bets like this one.

  • OH, Brad

    I love the picture of Brad playing chess. He is so gorgeous. Benjamin Button looks like a fantastic movie.
