New Social Network Trailers!


Here's the second teaser - I love the format:

And here's a full trailer!

Love. Love love love. Now, I will readily admit that I am a Sorkin fan and tend to assume the best of anything with which he's involved, but I honestly don't understand why so many people seem to be discounting this movie out of hand. I can only assume that those who keep saying, over and over, that a movie about people updating their status messages and playing Farmville would be boring are being deliberately obtuse, and I have little patience for that. It's pretty obvious that this isn't about random people using Facebook, folks. On the other hand, I do see the point of the criticisms based on the veracity (or lack thereof) of the source material. I was startled to realize that people were thinking of the movie as nonfiction - I was thinking of it as a heavily fictionalized account from the get-go - but if that's the case, then sure, this might not be what you're looking for. But questions of truthiness aside, just as a movie, this looks awesome and I'm very excited to see it.
