The Facebook movie trailer has been released. Yup, you heard it right. There’s a movie coming out about Facebook and it’s titled “The Social Network”.
Wait, don’t leave! It actually looks like it could be an interesting movie with a gripping story full of back-stabbing and … more back-stabbing.
From the trailer, with its soundtrack of “Creep” by Radiohead, it looks like Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg), the ‘founder’ and CEO of Facebook, is portrayed as a student who ends up out of his depth when a smooth-talking Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) – head of Napster – encourages him to pursue an idea that may never have been his to pursue.
The movie comes out in early October in the US so probably not too much later here in New Zealand.
The official website is here and of course there’s a prominent button to recommend the movie on Facebook. I wonder what Zuckerberg thinks about that?
