Finally, a website has become so big and so massive that someone has decided to make a movie based on it. This director happens to be David Fincher. The Social Network is coming out this October and I am actually excited about it.
I read an article in TIME magazine about the company and the owner and had no idea about any of the drama that was involved with the forging of this website. But after reading the article, I most certainly didn't think about it being a movie.
The trailer for this film is great. The music, the clips and even the voice overs are perfect. I am a firm believer that great movies often have great trailers. Some terrible movies have better trailers but, often enough, masterpiece movies have incredible trailers.
Just based on the trailer that I have watched several times, I am going to place my bet that this movie will be great. I don't know why, I just have that feeling.
When I first saw the trailer for No Country For Old Men, I fell in love and knew immediately that the movie was going to be amazing. At that time, nobody even had heard about the movie. And look what happened to it, it won a ton of awards that year. I think this will be the same for The Social Network.
David Fincher has directed some of my favorite movies and he always executes them perfectly. Seven, Fight Club and Benjamin Button were all incredible. I am going to hold the bar at the same level for this movie as well.
The characters look interesting and relatable and the story looks like it will be extremely captivating. I'm pumped. Fuck, I don't even know why but I am kind of excited that Justin Timberlake is in it... should be interesting. And Jesse Eisenberg is always interesting.
I'm going to say that The Social Network is going to be the film of the year. And it's kind of sad that I'm assuming that a movie based on Facebook will be the biggest film of the year.Do you think a movie about Facebook will do well in the box office? Or Do you think The Social Network will be a good movie in general?
