Here comes “The Social Network” [Film]

David Fincher’s new film The Social Network arrives in movie theatres in October. Columbia Pictures has put out a poster with the Mark Zuckerberg character on the cover with the caption “You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.” The Social Network stars Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield. It is based on the book The Accidental Billionaires and Zuckerberg’s creation of Facebook.

Fincher says:

“What did it feel like for someone like him to be 17 to 21 and have all these venture capitalists tapping him on the shoulder and saying, ‘Come over here’? If success accelerates the process of you becoming who you really are, how does that work when success happens so rapidly? How we feel about Zuckerberg is not how I see the story. The way I see drama, the context is the story.
