Theatrical Trailer for “The Social Network”
I don’t want to want to see this movie, but……
Wowzer. No matter how high your expectation-level was for the full-length trailer to David Fincher’s The Social Network, you probably didn’t anticipate something like this. Prepare to have the choral version of Radiohead’s “Creep” stuck in your head for the foreseeable future.
As with the previous teasers, The Social Network begins with a compilation of Facebook friendly images — status updates, emoticons, pictures — all while the mournful Scala & Kolacny Brothers cover of “Creep” revs up underneath. In fact, it’s not until one minute in that The Social Network finally offers a glimpse of Jesse Eisenberg as Facebook impresario Mark Zuckerberg, draped in cold aloofness and an oversized hoodie.
What follows afterward is basically the second teaser, but with images to go with the words — so get ready for your first peeks at Justin Timberlake, Rashida Jones and newly minted Spider-Man Andrew Garfield (chug that bottle of Jack Daniels, Andrew!). It all looks positively epic and Fincher-ian — the muted browns recall Fight Club and Benjamin Button — and while the Radiohead cover might be a bit too on the nose, it certainly has my heart racing with excitement. Is it October 1 yet?
