The Social Network Trailer

It's here, it's finally here! No more audio only, we finally have footage. Sony Pictures has premiered the full theatrical trailer (via Yahoo) for David Fincher's The Social Network, the Facebook movie starring Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg. I know this is going to get a lot of flack, but I think this looks Oscar caliber, but I expected nothing less from David Fincher. I really loved this entire trailer, the music choice, the story and its progression, the atmosphere, its message, it's such a beautiful way of teasing a movie. I have a good feeling The Social Network is going to be a highlight of 2010, this really does look incredible. Watch below!

The Social Network is directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker David Fincher, of superb films like Alien 3, Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, Panic Room, Zodiac and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button previously. The script was written by screenwriter and producer Aaron Sorkin, of A Few Good Men, "The West Wing", and Charlie Wilson's War previously. It's based on Ben Mezrich's novel titled The Accidental Billionaires, about the founding of Facebook: "A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal." Sony is bringing The Social Network to theaters starting on October 1st this fall. For more info and updates, visit the official website.

    Lol if you think this is Oscar worthy read the script, the ending is awful, I wouldn't even call it an ending. It just... ends.
  • woodenwood
    the only thing that made that bearable was the radiohead cover, and that girls butt.
  • wrongturn687
    Wow Fincher is really going to pull this off. What a great trailer and I'm actulally suprised at how dark and moody this thing looks. I mean the first trailers made it look incredibly cheesey, but not anymore. Like someone said before only Fincher can pull off making a Facebook movie look this good. Also does anyone know if it's going to be R or PG-13 ? I heard the script is pretty hard R, but I could deffentially see Sony trying to cut it down for wider audience appeal. It is a movie about Facebook afterall.
  • Definitely excited for this. I love Fincher's aesthetic with film, very dark and atmospheric even in the most simple of circumstances and his shots are generally something beautiful. Great cast, heard the script is superb, looking forward to this. Great trailer - again.

    can't wait!!

    I think people will be laughing at the end of the trailer when its shown. Hard to make something like Facebook into something so dramatic. What's next AIM: The Movie?
  • ONE what is this about again? It looks like a day in the life of facebook people. how interesting could this be?
  • jay
    The inventor of facebook is socially retarded. HOW PROFOUND!
  • Xerxex
    Eisenberg seems to be in the perfect role here. Andrew Garfield is fast becoming one of my favorite actros, and as for Timberlake I know he will surprise us.
  • cheezy c
    i didn't expect that. that looks pretty good
  • Jimmy Love
    Does David need a towel now or maybe you do!
  • Jimmy Love
    Hey number 4 that would be the DP
  • ryderup
    Didn't really hook me... BUT it will without a doubt be perfect.
  • For those curious, the cover of 'Creep' used in the trailer is done by the Scala Choir & the Kolacny Brothers. It's from their album 'On the Rocks':
  • Jimmy Love
    From Filmdrunk "You can tell it’s super serious because there’s a children’s choir singing the whole time. If you’re keeping score at home, Children’s choir = profound artistic statement." Now there's a good movie site!
  • Kelley
    @12 - not necessarily. Sure the DP has a lot of control over that, but in my experience, the director works very closely with the DP and Production Designer and Set Dressers to get a "look" - so its probably a combination of a lot of that. Also Fincher has a history with this sort of look - so I'd go ahead and say 4 is right. It is Fincher's aesthetic - because he's the top dog making all of the final decisions. Perhaps the little details were worked out by other people, but they were probably hired for this film because their aesthetics worked with what Fincher wanted for the entire piece.
  • Al
    I don't get some of the hate. It's not just that I disagree, but the way people are talking seems like they didn't even watch the trailer or read any synopsis. This isn't "a day in the life of facebook people" its Zuckerburg's story which basically could be (and seems to be) the Goodfellas of the internet. You're not getting any flack from me Alex, this is definitely an Oscar contender. I seriously can not wait for this, and I'm not even a Fincher fan.
  • Yekim
    this look pretty legit!
  • Cody t
    How is this trailer for appropriate audiences?
  • Johnny Boy
    Am I the only one who thinks this looks SUPER cliché?
  • ryderup
    #19 the trailer gives that feel sort of.. yeah... But I trust Fincher and Reznor.
  • graffiti bandit
  • beavis
    i didn't like it. at best it's "meh". nothing in it interests me in any way - it won't even make my netflix queue.
  • Here's some of the images from the set of the Facebookoffice, with Dave Choe explaining how they couldn't afford to get him to recreate the artwork he painted in the real Facebook headquarters as the budget was too small:
  • #25 - Thanks for the link, very cool artwork.
  • MMH
    the trailer looks interesting.
  • Nethanel
    It looks interesting, but I know the story of Facebook already and most of the legal woes because it is all over the place. An extremely well done trailer for what seems a very well known and not fascinating plot. It doesn't grab me because I already know what went down and what is still going down due to privacy issues that the news continues to report. I'd rather see an Apple flick. With all the rumors and gossip on Steve Jobs being tough on his employees and having health issues and working like a maniac, that would be interesting. He has a select many in the palm of his hand buying anything his company makes and he has haters on every technological corner. That's just me.
  • How could everyone not think that trailer was perfect? I don't even really care for Fincher usually, but this story looks epic. Definitely Oscar worthy... And @1...of course it doesn't have an "ending", it's reality not fiction. Plus Facebook is still around and I foresee many more lawsuits in it's future anyways.
  • megalodon
    eh. facebook
  • Bryan
    I thought the trailer was great, but the fact that they were speeding through all the dialogue was annoying me. Couldn't hear half of what was being said.
  • Darren
    are you guys stupid...there was so much controversy when facebook came out, they were lawsuit, the people who made it, friends become enemies and the basic idea of the website...99% of us are on facebook right now while watching the trailer...we have it on our phones, ipods, text alerts to our phones, on TV providers, xbox, and bluray players....I want to know how it all happened and the stories of the people who were involved in something we use everyday and millions use around the world! i even posted this video on my status
  • Vic
    Thanks for the idea #28, I'm gonna propose it to studio heads.
  • Moon
    Wow that didn't look very good. David Fincher has really fallen as a director.
  • Kevin
    Looks awesome. Fincher has never let me down (well, maybe Panic Room... good movie, but forgettable).
  • DoomCanoe
    #1 No Country for Old Men ring any bells? i think this looks amazing. plus I love movies like this
  • SkaOreo
    #17 Because it's about facebook. So automatically there will be people who hate it just for that reason. Personally I think this looks pretty interesting.
  • I'd watch Fincher direct the phone book, so I'll give this a go. Eisenberg looks the part and it should be interesting to see how this whole phenomenon got started in the first place.
  • Jimmy Love
    Irony=The guys whose line in Zombie land was "the best part of Z land is no more facebook status changes Rob's gearing up for Friday night" is the star of the Facebook movie
  • Louis
    Brilliant trailer and an absolute must-see this October!
  • Craig
    It looks as bad as I expected, but I still don't know if I'll be able to overcome my annoyance/seething hatred of social networking in order to enjoy it.
  • Craig
    41 Oops, meant to say it doesn't look as bad as I expected.
  • nem
    Kill it. Looks fucking stupid.
  • JimD
    What a frickin Joke. Gen Y. How about you do a real movie about the real beginnings of the internet from ARPANET through CERN, and onto Mosaic
  • JimD
    Whats even more lame is that movie assumes that Facebook was the beginning of networking (notice I drop the marketing term social) What about BBS, Geocities, Personal websites, Blogs, Forums, even My Space. All that and more way before facebook became commercial. Facebook is a fad until the next big loaded word comes along.
  • christina
    i'd watch this for andrew garfield. he's freaking amazing.
  • ryderup
    #45. Who cares. This is not a documentary. This is about the people behind this specific social network with freaking Fincher directing and Trent Reznor scoring. I mean come on.. that is enpough to be hyped. It will be a good movie.
  • Lewis Walker
    I dont know why people are hating. Its based on a true story about the creators of a company that has had a huge impact in our time. Theres the rise to riches, backstabbing, lawsuits... Fincher + Garfield + Reznor... whats the problem?
  • Johan
    Zuckerberg is a Thief and he really lost the court case! Facebook sucks! What this company produces? Just another marketing scam. Social networking. Bullshit. Facebooks market value is ridiculous.
  • ryderup
    #49 - so what? Why can't people keep their opinion on the site itself from this movie apart? I find that really strange... This has every ingredient it needs to be great, it being about the creators of "facebook" is just... a... McGuffin or whatever... I'm not a fan of scientology but if Nolan did a movie about it with Laura Linney in the lead and Eddie Vedder scored it i would be hyped...
  • chilin
    Just make this a documentary...
  • Alex O
    #1 - Did you see Zodiac or The White Ribbon? Those didn't have "endings" either, however I wouldn't say that they are bad films. I think Mark's character is interesting and I would like to see how this plays out as a fictional drama.
  • Alex O
    # 50 - Here, here!
  • cheezy c
    just read the script and i can tell this will be really good! also, seeing Justin Timberlake play Sean, which is a really different charachacter for him, so that should be really fun to see!
  • David D
    The people who aren't interested in this story are the same people who won't understand inception and are interested in things like transformers or any 3d movie because they need things flying at them to keep their attention. Fincher is one of the few working masters today along with nolan, scorsese, and the coens. If spielberg would release something already I'd keep him in the group because he is the best. People need to stop being amazed by recycled action movies and terrible romances. STOP BEING SHEEP AND PUSH YOURSELF TO GET SMARTER AND YOU'LL REALIZE THE FOOLS THAT YOU ARE
  • cheezy c
    #55 ftw!
  • Johnny Boy
    #55 You're an idiot, my interest in movies is the opposite of transformers and the likes, yet I find this trailer terrible and I am not interested in this film.
  • Johnny Boy
    and btw my alias is from Mean Streets in case I need to prove my interest in good movies...
  • David D
    Oh boy you really proved your interests in movies! way to be really smart with your edgy mean streets name. You must know a ton about movies!
  • Johnny Boy
    #59 You're the idiot who assumes people who are not interested in this movie must not like good movies, not me.
  • Al
    Johnny Boy, I have your back. I personally disagree with you about Social Network, but I respect your opinion. I hate when people have the mentality that if you don't like one particular film its either because you hate good movies, just want to be contradictory, or are too dumb to understand. It's like they don't realize that there is a such thing as a differing opinion. Those assholes do the same thing to me with Avatar. Mean Streets is awesome, by the way.
  • jman571
    Well this deserves an instant win merely for the Radiohead cover... But aside from that, it looks like there's some reference in the trailer to talking about like "exclusive clubs" or something that he wants to get into, which is interesting as Mark Zuckerberg was a brother in the AEPi fraternity for one year. Probably won't get a shout out by name, and they will probably make it some generic fraternity, but it will still be cool to go see it and be like, yeah that's us :)
  • FANTASTIC trailer. Looks fucking brilliant, people are seriously misunderstanding finchers motives for the film.
  • David D
    #60 Johnny boy. You are calling me the idiot? You are judging an entire movie by a preview. That is my point. You aren't willing to give the movie a chance because of a preview even though its in the hands of one of the few great working directors. You are foolish and i'm sure you do like good movies but i can guarantee they didn't all have spectacular previews. Get your head on straight before you open your mouth and blast ignorance everywhere
  • David D
    You also never actually say what looks bad about the movies. You have no evidence. There is no signs of bad acting, cinematography looks fantastic, no way to judge editing in a trailer, and the story is a compelling one. Wow, This will be my last comment because I'm arguing with the ignorant of the country. . . you are probably older than me which is sad too. . . God help us if you are younger and you are the future
  • VOLD
    Hopefully this movie shows how pathetic facebook is.
  • Johnny Boy
    #64 In the comment I originally replied to, you made a statement. That statement was: "The people who aren't interested in this story are the same people who won't understand inception and are interested in things like transformers or any 3d movie because they need things flying at them to keep their attention." I am calling you an idiot because this statement is completely wrong and a stupid way of categorizing the people who are not interested in this particular movie. I don't want to start explaining to you why I'm not interested this movie, all I did was point out that I'm the perfect example of why that statement of yours is ridiculous.
  • Johnny Boy
    And by the way thanks Al, I agree with what you posted and I completely respect the fact that other people can be interested in this.
  • Eric
    I loved the song remake underscoring the trailer, I love that Trent Reznor is scoring this picture, and I loved this trailer. When I first heard that there would be a FB movie I lumped it in with the Battleship movie, but this looks cool.
  • David D
    I think its funny, now that i've seen the movie, to see how people doubting this movie look like fools. It is incredibly sharp and is more exciting than most action movies out there due to its great performances, fast dialogue, and brilliant editing. . . so you can all stick with your "Saw" movies. . . especially you johnny boy. you sure look like you know what you're talking about now. . . not
