First Official Trailer for ‘The Social Network’

the social network First Official Trailer for The Social Network

Over the last couple of months we’ve been offered a veiled-peak at David Fincher’s The Social Network – by way of the first two teaser trailers. They were definitely effective in their own way, managing to tell us a lot by just using dialogue – but not actually revealing any footage.

Now we have the official full-length trailer for The Social Network -which shows the first real footage from the movie accompanied by a fantastic, rather haunting, version of Radiohead’s “Creep.”

If you’ve watched the first two teasers, something you’ll notice about the new trailer is that most, if not all, of the dialogue is the same. Things have just been rearranged and, of course, we get to see the footage that goes along with it.

Given the voice-track, it might sound like the trailer merely rehashes the same content but, as you’ll see below, it’s all about how it’s put together – which is to say, very effectively.

I’m probably not the only one who thought a Facebook movie was dubious when it was first announced. However, I honestly never realized the extent of the Facebook founder’s behind-the-scenes drama. It sure looks like Fincher has done a solid job of dramatizing the real-life events – making an engaging and even thrilling “biopic.”

The Social Network stars Jessie Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield (a.k.a the new Spider-Man), Justin Timberlake, Joseph Mazzello and Rashida Jones. The film was written by Aaron Sorkin, from the novel by Ben Mezrich, and is directed by David Fincher.

The Social Network updates its status in theaters on October 1st, 2010.

  1. I will be checking this out, though not in the cinema. i’d rather rent it or something. it doesnt like grab me as a must see film, but i mean it could be interesting to watch this movie and actually learn about the background story of facebook :)

  2. I’m sorry but this looks really stupid and pointless

    I usually give every movie a chance, and I’ll probably rent this one day, but what’s the point of this movie? What’s so interesting about how a social network website was built? Why should we watch a movie about a guy who made hundreds of millions of dollars and his “struggles”?

    I can’t believe Fincher wasted his talent on this nonsense.

    Again, I don’t mean to come off as “one of those guys” that criticizes a movie before it comes out but I just can’t help but think this movie is 100% trivial.

    • Then what’s the point in watching ANY movie? All a movie is is just a person’s struggles.

      • I mean that’s what “The Aviator” was about, a guy making millions and all his struggles. And I’m not saying that everyone loved that movie, but it is a good example.

        • I guess what I was saying is that it’s completely unappealing to me and I just don’t see the significance of facebook enough to go into the guys life and make a movie about it. Sure, the website itself had a big impact on the main stream society but the guy himself is not important. There are hundreds of stories more interesting about webiste business.

          And the comparison to Howard Hughes is not a good one. The guy is a very important historical figure and his “struggles” are actually much more substantial and important than the Facebook guy.

          • Btw, the guy himself said:

            “I just wished that nobody made a movie of me while I was still alive.”

            • I wasn’t trying to say that a movie about the starters of Facebook was as important as the life of Howard Hughes, I was trying to say that a movie isn’t instantly trivial just because all it deals with is a person and their struggles. And the reason it’s important enough to make this movie is because Facebook HAS had such an impact on society. I mean it’s pretty big deal right now, why not make a movie showing how it was made? Especially when it is as dramatic a one as this? In fact, this is a PERFECT movie to make right now!

          • Agreed!!!

            This is an unnecessary waste of time.

  3. Well, we can agree to disagree.

    I just don’t see it. I can’t relate to some rich kid in Harvard and to his struggles of becoming even richer. Everyone has drama in their lives. They can make a movie about anyone life and make it dramatic but there should be some standard as to who they choose. The importance of facebook is a little overblown. Where’s a Myspace movie?

  4. Well I can’t relate to a rich kid in Harvard either, but I’m still interested in the movie. I mean I couldn’t really relate to being a hobbit or Batman either but I loved both Lord Of The Rings and The Dark Knight. And I know how it’s frustrating when people make a movie about something that you feel doesn’t deserve to have been, but that’s kind of the great thing about being an artist, you get to do whatever you want.

    • Wooly, you make great points actually and I completely agree with you on the whole artist thing. You, sir, have changed my mind with your polite and civil counter-points :)

      In all seriousness you are absolutely correct. I’ll still not watch this movie but that’s based only on my personal preferences and tastes.

  5. I will enjoy this film if it exposes the corruption behind FB.

  6. I think that this film should be pretty good! there seems to be a lot of intensity in it. If they are going to make a movie about the devil in an elevator I don’t see why we shouldn’t be looking forward to a big budget film with a cat in a freezer I know we can all figure out what happens but you can just imagine the raw emotion. Finally alone with an undisclosed amount of fish, was it worth it? Can the dog save her? If you were a chihuahua would you? come on this could be a trilogy.

  7. I think you’re all forgetting that Justin Timberlake is in this. Garbage. Just like facebook: pure garbage.

    • How is Facebook garbage?

      • Quiet, you.

        • Haha, but really, HOW?!

  8. WOw I can’t think of anything less interesting. A crap movie based on a bunch of college kids that made a crappy site with an unoriginal idea.

    By the way after watching the trailer the entire film should say THIS IS A DRAMATIZATION. You know like on Unsolved mysteries and all those shows. Because this is way over dramatized.

    “Wow I just had a really cool thought.”

    “About what?”

    About something that has already been done, but we can do it and make it even more basic with less features and customization and even more pointless and have a lot of people sign up because it will be cool because we will tell them that it’s cool. We can make millions”

    It works… The End

  9. Well, I for one had noticed that things I have said in private messages are used to tailor ads on my page. I was talking about cooking cheeseburgers on the grill and whammo I got a top ad on my page featuring a cheeseburger. Same with politics, I soon get top ads on Obama.

    As for the movie, the first words out of my mouth to my gf as were watching the trailer for this at Inception, was “wow, I had no idea there was so much drama and s*** going on with that”.

    Definitely not something I’d pay $9 to see, but worthy of a $1 rental when it’s on DVD (or free from the Library. Yes, I know technically libray isnt without cost to the citizens but you know what I mean)

  10. sounds like it should belong the bio channel. not on the big screen.

    Could have been interesting if it was based somewhat on a original idea like yahoo or google.

  11. Am I the only one who actually thinks this movie looks good? I mean maybe it’s just the way they edited this trailer with the music and everything, but it seriously gave me chills. I mean I have Facebook (I agree that Facebook is getting pretty…pointless lately), but I think this movie is more than “a movie about Facebook”. It looks interesting to me.

    • I think it would be more interesting if they made a film about the guys who came up with the original idea not the guys who ripped off the guys that ripped off the guys who had an original idea lol.
