Nicely designed Benjamin Button story

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 19, 2008

At the risk turning into a Benjamin Button fan site (gallery featuring 250 hi-res photos of Brad Pitt scanned from magazines coming soon!), here’s one more little bit of info. Jonathan McNicol has taken the text of Fitzgerald’s short story and will be serializing nicely-designed and proofread PDFs of the story on his site for the next 11 days. Chapter one has been posted and it’s a beaut.

Trailer for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 18, 2008

Trailer for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. David Fincher, Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Pitt’s character starts off as an old man and ages backwards. Is it possible to buy tickets for this *right now*? BTW, the full text of the Fitzgerald short story on which the film is based is available online.
