TRAILER PARK: Benjamin Babylon Edition
Hot damn, I wanna see this movie now!
We're all in for a holiday treat come December when David Fincher's highly anticipated and whimsical tale of epic proportions, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button drops in theaters (I'm feelin' the Forrest Gump/Big Fish vibe). Brad Pitt is the titular character who is truly one unique individual: he ages backwards. Born as an old man and dying as an infant, Benny B sets off on an incredible journey of events, befriends a number of people along the way and falls in love with Cate Blanchett, who doesn't age backwards (sucks for her):
Then, there's a curious case of another kind, that being of Vin Diesel. Babylon A.D. is a futuristic tale about a former soldier/mercenary/all-around badass who has to protect and smuggle a "gifted" woman into the country (her talent? stay for the end of the trailer). Normally, I wouldn't touch a Vin Diesel vehicle with a ten-foot pole attached to another ten-foot pole, but something about it intrigues me. Maybe it's the fact that it's an original action film and not another frickin' comic-book or graphic novel adaptation (or a remake, for that matter...please tell me it's not a remake). The shit goes down Labor Day weekend:
