The Social Network official trailer


As a social media gal it’s only natural that I would be interested in the people behind some of the world’s largest online businesses.

Like Facebook, for example.

Later this year – if you didn’t already know – a feature film called The Social Network will be released and this is it’s official trailer which hit the internet yesterday.

It’s a brilliantly dramatic trailer and I’m super excited to see the film.

This synopsis is taken from All Movie:

The remarkable story behind Facebook comes to the big screen with this Columbia Pictures production scripted by The West Wing‘s Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac) .

The year was 2003. Computer programming wizard Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) was a Harvard undergrad when he laid the foundation for a social networking website that would revolutionize the way we communicate.

Six years later the ambitious entrepreneur made his first million – but that was just the beginning. Despite all of Zuckerberg’s wealth and success, his personal life began to suffer as he became marred in legal disputes, and discovered that many of the 500 million people he had friended during his rise to the top were eager to see him fall.

Justin Timberlake co-stars as Napster co-creator Sean Parker, with Andrew Garfield filling the role of ousted Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin. Based on the book The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich.
