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.
