“People want to go on the internet and check out their friends, so why not build a website that offers that? Friends, pictures, profiles. I’m talking about taking the entire social experience of college and putting it online.”
With that realization, so began the media phenomenon that would be Facebook.
The Social Network is a biopic that chronicles the evolution of founder Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg), and his friends from Harvard social pariah to revolutionary media mogul. Some say “media mogul” might be a lofty term for Zuckerberg, but when your rubbing elbows with Warren Buffett, Harvey Weinstein and Michael Bloomberg at the Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference, your mogul status needn’t be cosigned.
Nevertheless, with a story like that, there’s got to be some drama to look forward to and after watching the trailer, looks like there’s PLENTY of it. Upping the film’s cool factor, The Social Network is bringin’ JT back to the silver screen and boasts a score by Nine Inch Nails front man, Trent Reznor .
Watch the trailer, and if you “Like,” check it out in theaters on October 1st.
