A new international trailer is now online for The Social Network starring Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, and Justin Timberlake. The film, directed by David Fincher (Fight Club), is loosely based on Ben Mezrich’s non-fiction novel The Accidental Billionaire and focuses on the tumultuous early years of Facebook.
On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history… but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. From director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin comes “The Social Network,” a film that proves you don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.
The Social Network will open theaters on October 1st, 2010.
