Mark Zuckerberg lands some enemies in this teaser trailer for The Social Network

06.25.2010

It would seem easy to roll your eyes at the idea of a movie based on the creation of Facebook. However when David Fincher is involved, it's hard to say no.

A few people who have read the script for THE SOCIAL NETWORK say it's a really a great read. I just can't really that Zuckerberg kid. Maybe it's because he made a shit ton of money off of MySpace 2.0 or it could be the fact that he got caught calling Facebook users a bunch of "dumb f*cks".

All that aside, it boils down to this. The script is getting good buzz, Fincher is directing, and the cast should be an interesting watch: Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Max Minghella, Rooney Mara. Listen to the voice overs in this teaser and tell us what you think of THE SOCIAL NETWORK. The film releases October 15, 2010.

The story of facebook origin is actually very interesting. If you can find it, Rolling Stone did a really in depth article awhile back on it. Trust me when I say there is content for this movie to be DARK

Maybe I'm just in a bad mood today...

Probably like many of you, I have a facebook account. Fincher is a great director, although I didn't see Ben. Button (heard it was just too slow)despite the great performances from everyone. Just something irks me about this topic in general...so I don't really care. Maybe the next trailer will reel me in, but honestly can we get back to making real movies instead of remakes,superheros, or "inspired by a true story via reality TV"....

Just read the script. Trust me, there's a reason it's such an intense trailer. It has all the rise and falls and tension of a true crime thriller. I can't even begin to imagine how much better it'll be once Fincher puts on film.

I dunno, man. Just when I think about this movie and especially now after seeing the teaser it is like "lets discuss the genius of the man who invented the pet rock." That is the best way I can describe it right now. But hey, Fincher is the man and he wouldn't sign on to just anything so maybe it has greatness in it.

Like it. Perhaps a shade overcooked, but only a little. It's the kind of story that earns a little bit of melodrama.

That was not a good teaser. I guess the teaser was going for a sense of...tension? It's a Facebook movie, it's not some espionage thriller.

Boring

Wow what a waste of a minute. That was lame and the voice overs did nothing for me.

Overly dramatic music for a guy talking about starting up Facebook, he is called a prophet, he wants to make billions, and he is dealing with a lawsuit...

That was just... Um... :(

I know, it was like the parody you'd create if you were trying make the point that tense music can make any stupid plot about nothing seem super important.

In fact, are we sure this teaser wasn't secretly made by one of the College Humor producers?

i know just enough facebook and how it started and what this movie is based on to be excited about this film. will it be super awesome blockbuster? no. but if the facts i know are true and in this film, it should be.

This doesn't show any of the acting, but the story sure is intriguing. David Fincher is at the helm too, so I'm sure its going to be a good one.

Looks intriguing. I love Jesse Eisenberg and think he's criminally underrated. Some people seem to label him as a "Michael Cera" esque actor, but I think he's much more diverse and has done a wider range of roles than Cera. I'm very excited to see how this movie turns out. I'm sure it'll be great.

I 100% agree with you. People really do seem to relate him to Michael Cera and i agree Jesse has a mucher wider range. Cera may show us a better range with Scott Pilgrim though.

Absolutely. I mean I like Michael Cera a lot, don't get me wrong, but he's just sort of played various dimensions of himself, but I agree Scott Pilgrim could show a whole new side of him. Plus he's still VERY young, so he has time to expand his range and become more diverse.

I've read the book this film is based off of (Accidental Billionaires) and it was fantastic. There is definitely a good story here. The creation is facebook is much more interesting than youd expect. Justin Timberlakes character (Sean parker) is definitely gonna be a good one.

I don't know if anyone saw the made for tv movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley" about Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, but this film reminds me of that movie and it was pretty good. Plus this has got Fincher directing.

Dude, Pirates of Silicon Valley was great, especially if you're into tech history. I think this may be a real winner. I've got faith in Fincher.

Try as they will & try as they might

but there's just no story here. I like the tagline, though.

Yeah - it'll just be a bunch of explosions and CGI decepticons.

There are few reasons out there that would get me to watch a movie about Facebook. However, Fincher happens to be one of them.

How about Aaron Sorkin writing the script, or are you not a Sorkin fan? (Admittedly, I'm not, but I do admire his writing talent.)

That was meh. I liked what they tried doing, but it simply didn't engage me.
