David Fincher's 'The Social Network' Official Poster Unveiled
by Alex Billington
June 18, 2010
Bold marketing going on here - the tagline is the poster! So where is the title? It's along the side, as part of a sidebar that looks like the header from Facebook. Notice anything similar? That's an image I made for our posts about this project last year, but I digress. Sony has debuted the official poster for David Fincher's The Social Network, also known as the Facebook movie, about the co-founder of that social networking site, Mark Zuckerberg, as played by Jesse Eisenberg, seen on the poster. As usual, this probably means the trailer is hitting
soon (in July!), so stick around to see it. In the meantime, check out the first official poster 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.

Love the poster, but still think the casting of Justin Timberlake is a mistake.

That poster looks so fake it may actually be a real poster. Or is it the other way around?

Ugly poster. Like the idea but could have been better.

well, I am his enemy. Nobody needs FB. FB is like theBORGS of Star Trek but one day people will recognize that... and I hope it will not be too late. 🙂

David Fincher is one of the greatest directors ever

I agree with 13, pretty much like Christopher Nolan, anything David Fincher touches is pure gold, im sure this will be another great addition to his stats.

Actually the reason the sidebar looks familiar is because its literally the search bar from facebook turned on its side. Are you claiming they based it on your graphic you made? Certainly sounds that way, and thats a bit of a stretch...

i will admit that when Justin Timberlake was cast, I was taken aback but I just have so much faith in Fincher as I have loved each film he has directed. we'll see what happens, but i think this will end up being great.

Ok is true but who cares... Why not do it about the good impact social networking has over A group of friends and how come their lives becomes a drama with love, goals, commiment... And How this crew make a positive a sustainable impact on life... Let's say something like how they got together and coordinated efforts to clean areas affected by oil leak... And how Other interest tries to boicot their efforts but at the end through facebook the win the Battle a put on work on environmental change fore good. Ah?

Great poster, though getting sick of sans seriff, helvetica fonts dominating posters/cutting through images. its definitely the trend, but the poster is well designed and the touch on the side is great

Not the greatest poster ever

Wow, Eisenberg and Zuckerberg look alike! Despite all this hype about Facebook, does FB help us do a better job after all? Fesearchers at University of Maryland are doing a survey to understand the impact of social networking on job performance. The survey is here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SocNet

"Superb films like Alien3..." - Hahaha; that's a good one, not even Fincher would agree to that!

I think people should know what it's about to build something huge like facebook and all the things that happen in the background. For most of the 500 million people it's just a site... until they see the movie.
