October 1, The Social Network, the movie based on Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg hits the big screens.

Sony Pictures is releasing The Social Network, its liberally dramatized, completely unauthorized, and (its makers hasten to add) thoroughly researched Facebook origin story. In this telling, Zuckerberg is no mere code monkey with a fondness for dead languages and flip-flops. He’s a tragic archetype right out of Sinclair Lewis: the driven, wounded trickster-genius accused of stealing a million-dollar idea and throwing his friends under the bus, all in an attempt to summit the American dream.

Zuckerberg is played by Jesse Eisenberg, (Heart him) and Justin Timberlake plays Sean Parker, Napster co-founder.

I for one can't wait to see this movie. Don't know how true to life it is, but I'm going to see it anyway.

So what about you? Do you plan on seeing it or not ?

Re: Facebook - The Movie

Ohhhhh I can't wait to see it too! I was watching the news and they were talking about it and they said at age 21 Mark was poor as can be (in school) and by the age of 24 he was the youngest Billionaire - not millionaire but BILLIONAIRE! I'm sure he has enemies but life goes on you can't please everyone however true friends will stick by you. However I have heard he has screwed over some of his true long time friends. I know that two twin brothers are in a heavy lawsuit with him. He settled with them once but its going back to court I guess, they claim that "the face book" was their idea. He also has that one lawsuit with the one guy who backed him money wise when it first started.

Re: Facebook - The Movie
Of course, when money is involved (especially this amount) enemies abound and people also get greedy. I'm sure a lot of people claimed it was their idea and/or claimed to be involved somehow. I think Jesse Eisenberg is the perfect guy to play the part, the guy is a total geek, a very cute one though. Smile

You know what would be cool? It would be cool if they would make a movie about facebook stalkers.
