I'm rather surprised so many people think it's going to score so well. It's a tough call. It's a Fincher movie, which doesn't really translate to BO success, and it's about the guy who created Facebook, so I can't really see people flocking to see his life story. On the other hand, it's a Fincher movies, and her rarely does bad. Also, the good reviews should help. It will certainly be interesting to see if this really is the phenominal film the critics claim it to be.

I think it will break around 15-20 mil. No one really cares about the story of the Facebook guy and most audience reactions i've seen to the trailers consist of people literally asking out loud "what the fuck was that?" and moaning.

Yeah it's by Fincher but....

..it looks like a TV Movie Of The Week. Remember the one they had a few years back about a young Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Wozniak? This pretty much strikes me as the same thing only with a better director and worse actors.

I'm interested in it, but no way I would go to the theater to see it. This is more of a "Watch it on HBO" movie.

How ignorant are people ?
I cant believe most of the comments I read from people who dont understant that The Social Network is NOT about Facebook.
So far the critics are great and the talent involved alone should make anyone want to see this film. Unfortunately I dont think it will make that much money, but its not that important. Fincher isnt trying to kick off a franchise or anything ... What matters is that we'll get quality filmmaking.

I'd rather see a Youtube movie as well. The whole movie could just be 3 hours of random Youtube clips.

To Be Honest

I hope it does terrible - looks like shit. And shows that Hollywood is running out of ideas...

When's the Myspace movie come out?

Exactly. Because The Hangover was showcasing Hollywood's originality at it's finest.

I'd say so - Top grossing R-Rated Comedy movie of all time? Not bad at all

Having seen the movie

I think it's going to be a hit. I plan on seeing the movie again. And I think it's going to be the film to top for the Oscars next year. People are going to qoute this movie for years.

Meh This will probably be another bomb but that pic above to me suggests that they are looking at porn instead of at their social network.

Social Network FTW

I don't know grits from granola. But, I'll post anyway. The Social Network will be (most likely) next weekend's #1 movie. Its main competition are current movies and four premiering: Let Me In, Case 39, and Hatchet II. In theory, the three horror films will attract approximately the same audience. They will spread/dissipate dollars b/t each other. The Social Network has the broadest appeal of the four. Both genders and most cinephiles across demographics want to see it. "Everyone" uses FB, so

"Everyone" uses FB, so "everyone" is curious about the film. And, Fincher is a noted director respected by the Internet peanut gallery (such as us Schmoes) who also use FB or other social networking. Furthermore, horror fans would avoid each horror film for respective reasons. All true horror fans drool over Hatchet II. But, the film has l.r. Let Me In is a hatchet job ultimately (but, apparently very good if one has NOT seen the original). Zellweger does not appeal to everyone (though she may horrify them in fact). Social Network ftw w/ over forty million dollars (worth less than they were a week earlier; America should "friend" more nations).

Facebook is evil

watch the soutpark ep on facebook, hopefully that will prompt to delete your acct, and not see the movie. Facebook is a brainwasher. The creator of facebook looks like a puppet with aids. just sayin.

This movie should be huge.....but

It's David Fincher directing a movie that has a lot of critical interest, A revelant topic & storyline & rising young actors who look to be doing outstanding work.

...yep, I can see this film being 100% ignored. Wouldn't want our "Biggest Loser's", "Jersey Shore's" & "American Idol's" to be left out in the cold now would we America. I do hope that smart, SCRIPTED entertainment comes back to the mainstream someday & we won't have to deal w/ all these "Celeb-u-tard" reality shows anymore!

I overall agree with your sentiment, but this isn't the movie to jump on the soap box over, considering the lack of interest is due to the fact that the film is about a subject matter that those very same people you just blasted are the ones who obsess over it.

If you don't get a mental cringe every time you hear the word "facebook", you're probably part of the problem.

I'm going in ...

... with low expectations. Zodiac and Button were very good, but not in the line of Seven and Fight Club. Maybe because they are not that dark as his previous movies. But still, Fincher is one of the best directors working in Hollywood today.

It's not "about Facebook." It's about the lives of the people involved in its creation, etc.
