'The Social Network' website launches with 46 images

The official website for David Fincher's The Social Network has been launched with 46 photos, trailers and TV spots, and background music that some speculate is by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails who has scored the film.

The film stars Jesse Eisenberg ( Zombieland), singer Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield (the upcoming Spider-Man), and Rooney Mara, who has been cast in the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, also by Fincher. The Social Network tells the story of Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's founders.

The screenplay, written by Aaron Sorkin ( The West Wing), was based on Ben Mezrich's book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal.

The film will open the New York Film Festival September 24.
