The Social Network Poster Appears
David Fincher wants you to hit “like”…

20 June 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Sony

With all the issues over privacy and those truly annoying invites to play Mafia Wars or help with Farmville crops, Facebook is one of those fads that looks like it’s on the wane a little. But the story of the people who created it, and how the success poisoned their friendships, is still one we’re interested to see. Particularly as the result – The Social Network – boasts David Fincher in the director’s chair, working from a script by Aaron Sorkin. And now there’s a nicely creative poster for the movie.

The official site for the film (spotted via The Playlist) has launched, and for now is just the image you see below and a request to (surprise!) join the movie’s Facebook page. But that’s a nice twist on the usual use of heads in posters, matched by the Facebook-style bar at the side.

With Jessie Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield starring as co-founders Mark Zuckerberg, Sean Parker and Eduardo Saverin respectively, the movie uses Ben Mezrich’s book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal to chronicle the festering issues that drove the original trio to the heights of success and the depths of jealousy and greed. But there's room for comedy, too; this won’t be an overwrought drama

Now, of course, what we really want to see is a trailer.

 The Social Network arrives in cinemas on October 15.

Fincher never makes a bad film.........
But they usually are under-appreciated. More

Would never usually watch a film like this, but...
David Fincher is one of the most talented directors alive and Aaron Sorkin is one of the most talented writers. Jesse Eisenberg is always worth watching. What could go wrong? The poster, maybe? More

Very interesting
to see how this will play out. Likelihood of people quitting Facebook after seeing this might be high. No doubt it'll be an eye opener. And with Fincher at the helm, you just know certain secrets are going to be revealed, we never knew about. More

Looking forward to it.
I'm really quite excited about this. I love Fincher and think the idea for a film is really good. I imagine a lot of people will be disappointed with this film because they think it will some sort of teen comedy about facebook which i don't think it is. Loving the poster for it. More
