It’s that time of year again, folks, where we can start to look past the rest of the summer releases (except for Inception, yo!) and into the fall when the good movies start to arrive, although given how lackluster the summer has been, I’m not expecting miracles during Oscar season, either.
In any respect, here’s the teaser trailer for David Fincher’s The Social Network, aka, The Facebook Movie. I do think the movie, which was scripted by Aaron Sorkin and tracks the origins of Facebook back on Harvard’s campus way back in 2004, is going to be good, notwithstanding the dramatic emphasis the characters are voicing toward concepts herein that are only really dramatic to older people who don’t really know what Facebook is. “Thousand, twenty-two thousand” hits; or “We’ll sue him in federal court!”
What I’m saying is, don’t let the teaser trailer dissuade you from seeing it. Let the eventual real trailer dissuade you (if you must).
