David Fincher’s “The Social Network” gets full trailer treatment

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: David Fincher’s “The Social Network” quickly is becoming one of our most anticipated movies of the fall.

Forget the fact that Fincher hasn’t made a bad film. And more often than not, his film’s are stunning, challenging works of high art. “Benjamin Button,” “Fight Club” and “The Game” all made my Top 10 lists in the year’s they came out. “Zodiac” actually topped my list in 2007.

But I am intrigued by the story behind “Social Network,” which recounts the controversial rise of Facebook through the eyes of its founder, Mark Zuckerberg. Aaron Sorkin gets credit for the screenplay, adapted from Ben Mezrich’s novel. And Jesse Eisenberg of “Zombieland” and “Adventureland” looks perfectly cast as the pioneering Zuckerberg.

A new, full trailer makes its way online this afternoon. It only raises my already high expectations. We already know Fincher is opening the New York Film Festival with “Social Network” in September. I imagien it will play Toronto, as well.

When will the general public see it? Sony plans to open it wide on Oct. 1.
