THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON

DAVID FINCHER (Director) made his feature film debut in 1992 with "Alien³.” In 1995, he directed "Se7en,” the lauded crime drama of two detectives (played by Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman) tracking down a serial killer who bases his murders on the seven deadly sins. The film grossed more than $325 million worldwide and its innovative approach, title and credit sequences influenced other films in the genre for years to come.

In 1997, Fincher directed "The Game” starring Michael Douglas and Sean Penn, a dark adventure story focusing on a closed-off San Francisco businessman who receives an unusual gift from his younger brother – a gift in which he becomes an unwitting player in a game that takes over his life. In 1999, he re-teamed with Brad Pitt in "Fight Club,” based on the screen adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel. The film, which co-starred Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter, received strong notices from critics and developed an underground following marking it as one of the seminal films of its time.

In 2002, he directed "The Panic Room” starring Jodie Foster, Forest Whitaker, Dwight Yoakum and Jared Leto. The box-office hit, which introduced some innovative uses of computer graphics, centered on the plight of a single mother and her daughter hiding in a safe room of their new house as criminals broke in bent on finding a missing fortune.

Prior to directing "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” Fincher directed the critically hailed "Zodiac.” Released in 2007, the film garnered many kudos and was named in over 150 ten best lists, including Entertainment Weekly, USA Today and The Washington Post.
