Columbia Pictures has just released its first poster for David Fincher’s new movie “The Social Network,” otherwise known as the Facebook movie. The poster features image of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, as portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg. Atop his face is the tagline, “You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.”
“The Social Network,” which will be in theaters this October, chronicles the early history of Facebook, from its humble beginnings in a Harvard dorm room through its early rise to mainstream domination. Written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher, in many ways, the film seems even more timely now than it did a year ago.
The most recent round in the Facebook privacy debate only underscores just how important Facebook has become to millions and millions of people. And as the tagline says, you can’t serve 500 million users without rattling some cages.
While some might doubt David Fincher’s ability to bring the story of Mark Zuckerberg to the big screen, we, here at TheBlogIsMine.com, think Fincher is an amazing moviemaker who has directed two of us favorite movies (“Fight Club” and “Zodiac”). What I’m trying to say is that I can’t wait till release date.
“The Social Network” stars Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg, and Andrew Garfield and is based on Ben Mezrich’s book “The Accidental Billionaires,” which about the creation of Facebook.
Eisenberg plays Mark Zuckerberg who created Facebook in his sophomore year at Harvard in 2004. Timberlake plays Sean Parker, co-founder of Napster and Facebook’s founding President; and Garfield plays Eduardo Saverin, Facebook co-founder who had a falling out with Zuckerberg over money.
