A new TV spot has been released for David Fincher’s upcoming feature, The Social Network and it gets a little help from Kanye West aka Ye’ aka Kanyeezy. It’s a 60 second commercial that features the rapper’s single, “Power.” A fitting track for a film about the corruption of money and influence. Check out the video below…
The Social Network is based on the book, The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal, which tells the story behind the controversial birth of the website. Jesse Eisenberg and Garfield play Facebook co-founders Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin, while Justin Timberlake stars as Sean Parker, the co-founder of Napster and the founding president of the site. The film’s screenplay was written by award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin.
The film also stars Rooney Mara and Rashida Jones and is slated to hit theaters this fall on October 1, 2010 (just in time for the new school year). This movie will be one big commercial for the website that’s already taking too much of society’s free time. But the story behind how it all got started does sound interesting and let’s be honest, Fincher is the man!
