It’s hard to find a person who hasn’t seen (or at least heard of) at least one movie directed by the great David Fincher. The award-winning movie director gave us gems such as Se7en, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Gone Girl, Fight Club, Zodiac and The Social Network and is widely considered to be one of the best, most talented film directors of his generation.

Fincher was born in Denver, Colorado, in 1962. His mother was a nurse and his father was a journalist. After spending the first two years of his life in Colorado, Fincher moved with his family to California, where one of his first neighbors was the future fellow movie director George Lucas. Fincher was interested in movie-making since the earliest age – he made his first films with an 8mm camera when he was only eight. The family later moved to Oregon, where Fincher started working as a movie theater projectionist and a television production assistant.
