Doesn't sound good? You're right. Among with many others David Fincher's new masterpiece "The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button" was assigned to a new, later release date. We're talking no less than a 25-day longer starve for this year's cinematic highlight: December 19th 2008. On the the other hand, hey, this is closer to Christmas. And it could have been worse. They could have done the same thing they did with "Zodiac" and dumped the film into march 2009.
So the good side is this: The film might now be in an even better spot for next year's Oscar season ... and it gives Fincher three more weeks to tweak editing and effects!
