Finally, after two teaser trailers that featured nothing but large, bold text and lines of dialogue from the film, Columbia Pictures has released a full trailer for David Fincher's The Social Network, which features actual footage from the film, and plenty of it! Set for release on October 15, 2010, The Social Network stars Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake and Rashida Jones and sports a script penned by Aaron Sorkin.
Eduardo Saverin (Garfield) and Mark Zuckerberg (Eisenberg) were Harvard undergraduates and best friends--outsiders at a school filled with polished prep-school grads and long-time legacies. They shared both academic brilliance in math and a geeky awkwardness with women. Eduardo figured their ticket to social acceptance--and sexual success--was getting invited to join one of the university's Final Clubs, a constellation of elite societies that had groomed generations of the most powerful men in the world and ranked on top of the inflexible hierarchy at Harvard.
Mark, with less of an interest in what the campus alpha males thought of him, happened to be a computer genius of the first order. Which he used to find a more direct route to social stardom: one lonely night, Mark hacked into the university's computer system, creating a ratable database of all the female students on campus--and subsequently crashing the university's servers and nearly getting himself kicked out of school. In that moment, in his Harvard dorm room, the framework for Facebook was born.
Aside from new footage from the film, the trailer also features a ghostly a capella version of Radiohead's Creep, undoubtedly chosen by Fincher himself. The song, while very unconventional as far as trailers go, really enhances the emotions of the trailer, drives the story, and helps to set The Social Network apart- it's very smart marketing. If you can't tell, I'm really excited for this movie. See the new trailer below and check out all of our Social Network trailers in the gallery!
