Trailer: The Social Network


15th July 2010

Judging by the accompanying track, 'Creep' by Radiohead, I think it's fair to say this movie about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will not be fair and balanced.

We've already seen two teaser trailers for David Fincher's Facebook movie, The Social Network, but neither of those had any actual humans in. This full trailer gives a far better idea of the kind of movie we can expect, but I'm still yet to be convinced that this isn't just Fincher pissing about between masterpieces. Hands up who prefers the murdery-rapey David Fincher? (*puts hand up*)

It's still just a movie about a social networking site. Yes, there are large sums of money involved, and possibly elements of betrayal and corporate intrigue and vicious back-poking. But the very fact it's about Facebook - where billions of cud-chewing tards (myself included) sew their daily LOL seeds - makes it hard to be that impressed. At least Tom Clancy films are about the government or spies or nuclear bombs or something.
