As we draw nearer to the movie about the website that (without sounding to dramatic) changed our way of life, we get our first look at the movie trailer for the film about the founders of Facebook called “The Social Network.” The film stars Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook and also stars Justin Timberlake who plays Sean Parker, the co-creator of Napster and former president of Facebook.
The trailer is super creepy. It starts off with a bunch of random shots of the site we know as facebook. People’s profile pictures, relationship status, “Add as a friend,” “What’s on your mind?,” and the likes. The trailer is set to the Vega Choir’s rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep,” and let me tell you, it succeeds in being creepy. We then get our first look at the actual movie and the drama behind the scenes of the creation of a billion dollar venture between best friends. I’m really looking forward to seeing this movie, which is set to release on October 1st, 2010.
