Paramount Reluctant to Use Nude Brad Pitt on 'Benjamin Button' PosterS

Though we were enamored of the backwards type and deer-in-headlights look that distinguished the poster for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, others found it terribly generic. Now, Slashfilm presents Paramount's alternate take.

We think this rejected key art featuring Taraji P. Henson and a nude, wrinkly baby Pitt more effectively sells the reverse aging tale—particularly had they paired it with a catchy tagline. Say, "One man's journey from Depends to Huggies."
