The soon-to-be extinct ‘Benjamin Button’ trailer…

Posted by · 9:47 am · May 23rd, 2008

…looks positively AMAZING. Catch it while you can. I’m sure it’ll get yanked soon enough.

The visual effects look so exquisite and seamless.  Director David Fincher has supposedly been pretty tight-lipped about his recipe in that arena for a while, but it looks to be a truly unique blend of CGI and makeup artistry.

    This has been my most anticipated movie of 2008 for as long as it’s been in production. Nothing has changed with this trailer. That’s for sure.

    You’d think an English version would be online by now, though, since it was attached to Indiana Jones.

    Easily my most anticipated film of the year along with WALL-E and the already seen Indiana Jones.

    The trailer does not disappoint, I can even understand Spanish, it makes me crave the original trailer even more, and of course, the finished product by year’s end.

    It better be good!

    A stunner, guys.

    This was just a great unexpected bonus before the great Indiana Jones movie. I remember seeing this in the theater and just thinking it looks absolutely amazing. And with Eric Roth (and Fincher) behind it, I know it will be.

    There is little doubt in my mind that this will be a major contender in many many categories. It will definitely have a hard time making it’s $150 million budget back.

    On that note, I just want to openly say that Kathleen Kennedy is one of the unsung heroes of the industry. For years, she produced absolutely amazing work and stood up for great artists. And when I hear talk about Grazer getting a Thalberg Memorial Award it just makes me mad because he doesn’t deserve it. It would be so much better to see her and Frank Marshall recognized instead.

    Well, it looks all kinds of wonderful, though if it’s as good as I hope it’s going to be, it might be a bit of a leap for the Academy. (That said, I would have said the same about No Country last year, so who knows what they like these days?)

    Regardless, I think some of next year’s tech awards could be forespoken.

    And I echo Proman’s words on Kathleen Kennedy – projects like this and “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” are exemplary of a major Hollywood player using their forces for good rather than evil.

    Indeed, Proman. I’ve been screaming that to the rafters for so long. Wonderful industry leader.

    She’s great. Rumor is, she’s also going to be behind the “Halo” movie, along with Spielberg, Lucas, and Jackson. That’s only a rumor, but if it’s true, it should be the first really good video game movie.
