The first poster for David Fincher’s The Social Network has been released and it looks great. But with it being Fincher related, is that any surprise? While some might doubt his ability to bring the story of Mark Zuckerberg (the founder of Facebook) to the big screen, I think Fincher is an amazing filmmaker who has directed two of my favorite movies (Fight Club, Zodiac). What I’m trying to say is…I cannot wait till October 1st.
With the poster arriving today, it probably means a trailer is about to be released. We’ll post that as soon as it’s online. Hit the jump for more info on the movie and the high-res poster:
The Social Network stars Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg, and Andrew Garfield and is based on Ben Mezrich’s book The Accidental Billionaires, which about the creation of Facebook. Eisenberg plays Mark Zuckerberg who created Facebook in his sophomore year at Harvard in 2004; Timberlake plays Sean Parker, co-founder of Napster and Facebook’s founding President; and Garfield plays Eduardo Saverin, Facebook co-founder who had a falling out with Zuckerberg over money. The script was written by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, Sports Night, The American President).
