Next weekend, people’s lips will be buzzing with either good or bad reactions to David Fincher’s latest film, The Social Network. The movie takes us behind the scenes of the juggernaut website and its humble beginnings. Sony has released the first clip from the film that features Jesse Eiseberg as founder and creator Mark Zuckerberg. During this scene, the college student has a moment of discovery that will change the design of the site forever…
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. It stars Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Joe Mazzello, and Rashida Jones.The film’s screenplay was written by award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin.
Hopefully, the movie won’t be filled with moments similar to this one where everything gets discovered by accident. The way Eisenberg’s sitting there in frustration is a tell-tale sign that he’s about to have a breakthrough and he does.
The Social Network is scheduled to hit theaters on October 1st.
