With director David Fincher’s The Social Network getting released next week, Sony has released five clips from the brilliant movie and you can check them out after the jump. If you read my mini review, you know I think The Social Network is one of the best films of the year as it’s loaded with tremendous performances and an incredible script. I’m quite certain many critics will have the movie on their top ten list at the end of the year. I also wouldn’t be surprised to see it nominated for Best Picture at next year’s Oscars.
But rather than have me go on and on about how great the movie is…watch the clips. Trust me, this is a film you need to see next weekend.
Here’s the synopsis:
On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history… but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. From director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin comes The Social Network, a film that proves you don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies. The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca, and Ceán Chaffin and based on the book “The Accidental Billionaires” by Ben Mezrich. The Social Network stars Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Armie Hammer, Rashida Jones and Rooney Mara
