The Social Network is a movie that has stormed the U.S. box office, holding the top spot for a fortnight as David Fincher returns to the director’s chair.
A great young cast has been assembled; Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield – apparently there’s also a little Oscar talk about Timberlake’s performance!
The amazing true story of the computer nerd who came up with the idea for Facebook while still a student – and found 500 million new friends!
Social reject and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) is a geek with a capital G! Desperate to be one of the popular kids at Harvard he sits down at his computer and invents Facebook.
A few years later, having hit the big time, he drops out of college and sits back as the money comes rolling in.
However, although he may be a high-achieving entrepreneur with millions of online friends, he finds that in the real world things are not quite so straightforward.
Mark finds his phenomenal dotcom success leads to legal problems when his best friends accuse him of stealing their idea.
The Social Network is released 15th October. Take a look at a couple of clips from the movie:
