The first poster for the upcoming Facebook inspired movie The Social Network was released last week and it’s definitely got me interested. The film is directed by Fight Club director David Fincher and is based upon the book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding Of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal which profiles the rise of Mark Zuckerberg and his Facebook empire. The movie will star Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg (who I’ve loved since The Squid and The Whale, and was great in Zombieland) as well as Justin Timberlake as Sean Parker.
The poster itself is great, though, especially the photograph itself. Supposedly the movie is going to be pretty funny, so hopefully it’s a dark comedy if anything. I also love the details of having the Facebook interface and the scroll bar. Extremely clever and I’m totally excited to see more.
