The very first teaser for its upcoming film, The Social Network, has just been released by Columbia Pictures. The teaser like the poster that had debuted last week, is bare in its detail, but stimulating and provoking at the same time.
The movie otherwise known as ‘the Facebook movie’ is based in part on the book ‘The Accidental Billionaires’. It talks about the decisive days of Facebook, from its founding in Mark Zuckerberg's Harvard dorm room through its early rise to victory. The movie is directed by David Fincher, written by Aaron Sorkin and has Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg. It is due to hit theatres this October.
“You can't make 500 million friends without making a few enemies”, the tagline of the movie is said to sum up some of those untimely days, and the film is as much a journeying of young people coming to terms with creating something bigger than themselves as much as it is about allegiance, envy and wealth.
Let alone a film from A-level writers and directors, there had been questions as to why Facebook and its story was worthy of a film. It’s irresistible success and the fact that it has become significant enough to drive continuing discussions regarding confidentiality and data ownership is analytic that it is a force, which deserves relentless attention.
Movies are an intrinsically social experience. A movie about a social network and the social factors, stories and melodramas that went into the founding of that network makes logic on a weird Meta level.
