Just released, the first trailer for the upcoming film,
The Social Network, also known as 'the Facebook movie,' is an audio teaser intended to intrigue with excerpts of key dialogue alluding to the story, symbolic words, and the poster coming into focus.
Based on Ben Mezrich's book, The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal, the film chronicles the founding of the social network Facebook by Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin at Harvard University to its meteoric rise and the falling out of these two friends over money.
The film stars Jesse Eisenberg ( Zombieland, Adventureland) as Zuckerberg, Andrew Garfield ( The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) as Saverin and singer Justin Timberlake as Napster's co-founder.
Written by Aaron Sorkin ( The West Wing television series) and directed by David Fincher ( The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Fight Club), the film releases October 1 in North America.
