A set of fresh 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' images shows the titular character, played by Brad Pitt, in different phases of his mysterious life.
About a month away from its theatrical release in December, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" has brought forward few of its stills to attention. The pictures present Benjamin Button in different life phases from his baby to his old age in which he turns younger.
One of the photos shows him interacting with his love interest in a dance studio. Another picture displays him sitting on the deck of a ship reading a letter, while the other one presents a lot younger looking Button playing chest game. The remaining two images let out him being cradled and him sitting on a wheelchair as a seven years old boy in an 80-something years old body.
Adapted from the classic 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, "Benjamin Button" is a traveler tale about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. The story begins in New Orleans at the end of World War I in 1918 and continues to the twenty-first century, chronicling his journey when seeking a place where he fits in. This David Fincher-directed drama stars Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button. It also features Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Julia Ormond and Elle Fanning, and will come out in U.S. theaters on December 25.
