Trailer: The Social Network

David Fincher's The Social Network (10.1.10) is, of course, the well-documented movie on the inception of Facebook, with Aaron Sorkin's script reportedly a Treasure of the Sierra Madre like take on greed, power and money between the turbulent friendships of real-life founders Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin and Sean Parker.

The trailer is brilliant. A version of Radiohead's "Creep" slowly plays like a church choir in the background and finally Fincher's usual chocolate-brown compositions take over. Hopefully it's a return to form for Fincher after The Curious Case of Benjamin Button ('08) and more reminiscent of his 21st century masterwork Zodiac ('07).

  1. I wonder if this will get any nods at the Oscars? Maybe for a supporting role, maybe for Eisenburg.

    "Creep" performed by a children's choir is borderline horrifying.
