There’s a new TV spot for David Fincher’s Facebook movie The Social Network and it’s almost as good as the film’s trailer.  Set to Kanye West’s “Power”, this TV spot puts a bit more emphasis on the humor.  Last night, I finished reading the book on which the film is based, The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich.  The movie always has to survive separate from it source material, but looking at the trailer, I see a lot of scenes that were in the book.  It’s a good read and you should check it out.  And with Fincher at the helm working from Aaron Sorkin’s script, I think Social Network should turn out much better than adaptation of Mezrich’s Bringing Down the House (which became the disappointing and whitewashed 21).

Hit the jump to check out the new TV spot.  The Social Network opens on October 1st.

(Also, if you’re wondering about the “At 18 he said no to Microsoft” line, Zuckerberg turned down a million dollars from the company after he had basically created the iTunes “Genius” program.  In 2001.)

Here’s the official book description for The Accidental Billionaires [via Amazon]

In 2003, Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg were Harvard undergrads and best friends looking for a way to stand out among the university’s elite and competitive student body. Then one lonely night, Zuckerberg hacked into the campus computer system to pull off a prank that crashed Harvard’s network. This stunt almost got him expelled, but it also inspired Zuckerberg to create Facebook, the social networking site that has since revolutionized how people around the world communicate. With Saverin’s funding their small start-up quickly went from their college dorm room to Silicon Valley. But different ideas about Facebook’s future tested Zuckerberg and Saverin’s relationship, which then spiraled into out-and-out warfare. Soon, the collegiate exuberance that marked their collaboration fell prey to the adult world of venture capitalists, lawyers, and big money.
