Yep, a movie about the social networking site is on its way. When I heard that this was in production I really was not too intrigued. Probably because I couldn’t imagine a story about social media translating well in movie theaters. But the trailer for The Social Network, which tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg and the birth of Facebook, has just been released and, to my surprise, it looks pretty good. Check it out:
As you can see, the story is focusing on Zuckerberg’s not so pretty road to success with dramatic fights, board room scenes, and a player-type Justin Timberlake as Napster founder, Sean Parker. It looks like it has the potential to be pretty good. But that’s what trailers are supposed to do. As a member of the Facebook generation and all around advocate of the social sphere, I plan on seeing this flick when it comes out in October. Also, I’m pretty much sold on anything involving Justin Timberlake (I can’t help it. I’m a product of the N’Sync era).
What do you think of the trailer? Do you plan on seeing the movie when it comes out?
