The Social Network Gets A Teaser Trailer
Sorkin + Facebook + dialogue = 'like'?

28 June 2010  |  Written by Alastair Plumb  

submit to reddit

We’ll admit that West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin is worshipped and praised like a living deity here at the Empire offices, so we have high hopes for his latest cinematic outing, The Social Network – otherwise known as ‘The Facebook Movie’.

Aaron Sorkin not interesting you? Well there’s also the fact that it’s being directed by Fight Club and Se7en’s David Fincher, and it’s starring, as Mark Zuckerberg himself, Adventureland and Zombieland’s Jessie Eisenberg (who’s still pitching for it to be renamed Facebookland*), as well as Andrew Garfield (Dr Parnassus, Boy A) and the somewhat underrated Justin Timberlake (who was pretty damn good in Alpha Dog).

If you were worried Aaron Sorkin’s dialogue-heavy scriptwriting might have faded away after all these years, worry not, as this teaser trailer is pretty much just that: heavy dialogue.



It’s tense. It’s dramatic. It’s… exciting? What do you guys think?

We’re reserving any sort of judgement on this one, especially as it is a story that many already know, and also because, well, is it about a social media site. What are they going to do with it? Will you ‘like’ it? We’ll find out on October 11, it seems.

* Not in anyway true. We hope.

Meh
I'm sure it'll be a very well made film, and the teaser definitely had me, and then it mentioned facebook, and I've seen so many fake trailers online about facebook stuff that I couldn't take it seriously. And then the 500 million friends bit, well... More

Will win oscars
David Fincher must have taken this film for a reason. I can bet you it'll be immaculately shot, the script will be near flawless, the acting will be pinsharp... the first facebook branded product that will NOT be a load of s***. More

No. Just no. Why is this a good idea? Why did Fincher choose this film? Why did it need to be made?!?! More
