First Teaser Trailer for ‘The Social Network’

the social network First Teaser Trailer for The Social Network

I have to admit, I was surprised to hear they were making a Facebook movie. Despite how many people use it, I just didn’t see how they could capitalize on that popularity in theaters. However, from the look of the first teaser trailer for The Social Network, it appears they’ve found a way to do it – actually making a movie about a website interesting.

As you probably know, The Social Network isn’t about Facebook itself (I’d like to see them try and make that movie) but rather the founders of the site, Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.

I’m actually really curious to see the behind-the-scenes drama, as well as aftermath, that occurred in the process of creating one of the most popular websites on the net.

The teaser trailer is exactly that, a teaser – but it does enough to grab my attention. Check out the trailer for yourself:

As I mentioned, just a tease, but the trailer definitely succeeded in getting me a bit more interested in the movie than I was before.

Having said that, I was already somewhat on board – ever since David Fincher became attached as director. For my money he’s one of the most talented filmmakers working today (just look at movies like Se7en, Fight Club and Zodiac) and I’m very intrigued to see what he’s done with the Facebook founding story.

It’s not exactly his usual type of movie, is it? Unless of course there were some seriously twisted happenings in the Facebook origin story.

What do you make of the first teaser trailer for The Social Network? Love it or hate it? Sound off in the comments below.

The Social Network‘s cast includes Jessie Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Rashida Jones and Rooney Mara. It was written by Aaron Sorkin (based on the novel by Ben Mezrich) and is directed by David Fincher.

The film hits theaters on October 1st, 2010.

  1. this actually looks interesting, seems like its focusing on more “you screwed me, i want my share” aspect, still not sure if i will be seeing this, like shanks, i’ll need to see another trailer or two

  2. Sounds melodramatic. Looks like that’s the strategy- throw around big numbers and breathless melodrama.

  3. I liked the original, the TV MINI Series at the time, can’t wait to see what they do with this one. Although it was a bit slow.

  4. While I think the movie has potential, I don’t think that’s a very good teaser – I don’t see it enticing many people to see the movie.


    • you think myspace of twitter could campaign against it..? 😉 😛

      • Myspace is dead.


  5. You people seem to be forgetting that Justin Timberlake is in this movie. As in the what-business-do-you-have-acting-man-you’re-terrible-stick-to-dancing Justin Timberlake. Yes, the teaser is done well but shows nothing. It’s a movie about facebook. C’mon, it can’t possible be good. It can’t… can it? :O

    • oh I know Timberlake is in it. I prefer to ignore that fact. actually, I prefer to ignore Timberlake’s existence altogether.. but it’s a new Fincher movie after all, and Jessie Eisenberg is in it — which is always a good thing

    • In the few things I have seen Justin Timberlake act in, I like him in: “Alpha Dog,” “Black Snake Moan,” “The Open Road.” Him being in this doesn’t detract me at all.

  6. Is it true the movie is 3h10m long..?

    • Haven’t heard that one. If that’s true – WOW.

  7. I’m not sure if it will be flattering [A],,,

    Did anyone read this new clip? Story broke a few weeks back,,,

    (Here’s part of it)
    Nicholas Carlson, reporter for SILICON ALLEY INSIDER, posted a transcript of one of the early instant messenger exchanges Mark had with a college friend. According to Carlson’s sources, the following exchange is between a 19 year old Mark Zuckerberg and a friend shortly after Mark launched the Facebook in his dorm room:
    • Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard
    • Zuck: Just ask.
    • Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS
    • [Redacted Friend’s Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?
    • Zuck: People just submitted it.
    • Zuck: I don’t know why.
    • Zuck: They “trust me”
    • Zuck: Dumb f*cks. ^
    Guy really cares about privacy,,,
    I’m guessing Timberlake will play a younger version of Zuck? Who knows I won’t support FB or this film.

  8. seriously? who cares about this…
    the world would be so much better without facebook. now it deserves a movie? nah…forget that

    • someone has no idea what the movie is really about..

      • actually i do. anyone with half a brain would have realized that when i say “now it deserves a movie?” i meant the person who created it. like youre brilliant with your ability to understand that movies have conflict and plots. thats not my point. my point is screw facebook and the creator and anyone who helped develop it.

  9. im calling it now. this movie is going to be alot bigger than anyone thinks. EVERYONE is on face book.

    • @ wowed

      I’m not on Facebook,and more than likely,never will be.

      This movie is gonna tank.

    • @wowed:

      many are on facebook, yet almost no one cares about how it started. i agree with Longshanks the movie will tank. what a stupid idea for a film…

  10. Why would anyone with half a brain be on Facebook. The CEO and founder doesn’t hold any moral values on privacy.

    • Um, yeah, a ton of people are on Facebook, including me. 8)


    • I started using it to see a friend’s pictures.. I’m more on the twitter side — with most of the movie-site guys posting links there to the newest articles.. short and simple

  11. Vic, I understand why your on FB, however you did read my previous comment on the leaked IM’s???

    Facebook did not threaten to sue the source. They issued a statement (the same day) basically whitewashing the article. The bulk of the statement was how they were going to be changing there security protocols.
    Prob is there’s too many opportunities for abuse within the FB, Twitter, MySpace system. I don’t support any social networking sites. There a means to an end of online privacy… All of the sites have been found to compromise user info. The stories are then quicly replaced with how new solutions are being put up. Its all bs.

    If anything I hope this film wakes alot of people up to the scumbags that are in charge of their private information.

  12. The only reason I’m even on FB is to promote my site. I have no other use for it than that.

    • Matt,

      Yeah, I don’t really use it for personal stuff much. Otherwise I’d only friend 1/10th of the people that I have. No personal or family pics up on my account for that reason. My wife JUST signed up, but I’ve got her account locked down to the max privacy settings.


  13. facebook: made so that losers dont have to approach a girl to ask her out or ask her phone number. instead they can flirt via comments and post pics of themselves where the lighting is just right and you cant see their bad features. now i can stalk anybody!!! :)
