Facebook on Big Screen “The Social Network”


Facebook must be a much better hit than Google that Hollywood is making a movie about it called “The Social Network”. I just saw the preview in the Georgetown Movie theater last night. The trailer consists of fast-typed Facebook

From the preview, it looks like this movie is going to give tech movies like Pirates of Silicon Valley and Anti-trust a bad name I think.

The film written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher that retells the origins of Facebook. Buzz for the movie has been steadily building up for the last month as the studio released teaser trailer filled with dramatic music and punchy dialog — but no footage showing the actors. This trailer brings the goods, and the movie is looking pretty damn good.

As would be expected, the trailer is loaded with scenes of Jesse Eisenberg’s Zuckerberg, Justin Timberlake’s Sean Parker, with appearances from the Winklevoss twins, Dustin Moskovitz, and more. The movie is slated for release October 1 2010.
Vodpod videos no longer available.

I wonder how much Facebook get paid for selling the rights, does anyone know? Also, is there a major marketing tie-in with Facebook? I wonder how close the two are working together…

  1. There’s an annoying article on Parker in Vainness Fair. It is everywhere and, well, simply annoying.
