"The Social Network"

Teaser Movie Trailer Review

By our guest blogger, Rob Stammitti

Many things could go wrong with David Fincher's upcoming "The Social Network," a film about the founding of Facebook and the tumultuous relationships between its co-creator Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg) and the rest of its founders. For one, it's going to date fast. The rapid nature of the internet demands constant changes, new sites, new toys--who knows how long Facebook will be the most predominant social networking site? There's also the matter of people's general interest in watching events unfold that happened just a few years ago with a bunch of people they may not have interest in.

But with a director like Fincher and a writer like Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing"), there's sure to be more to it than people are expecting. It's a subject ripe for satire, and judging by the second teaser trailer, which consists of a sequence of Facebook wall posts dictating the rapidfire dialogue of the first teaser, they do intend on confronting the website and the controversies regarding privacy and its social implications head-on.

The main draw of the film, outside of Fincher and Sorkin's involvement, is the really outstanding ensemble cast--Eisenberg is joined by Andrew Garfield (the next Spider-Man), Justin Timberlake, Rashida Jones, Brenda Song, Max Minghella and Rooney Mara, among countless other up-and-coming young actors.

"The Social Network" could be a goldmine of satire and character study or a tired tirade that everyone's already heard, but for now, it's looking to be the former.

The film will be released October 1, 2010. The second teaser is below. Thoughts?
