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.
