The Social Network Unveils a Full Trailer

After unveiling a pretty engrossing, and starkly simple, teaser trailer, and after releasing this very cool poster, the full trailer for the upcoming film about the founding of Facebook, entitled The Social Network was released.

Now two things made me excited about this flick early on. First, the screenplay is being written by Aaron Sorkin, and I think he's one of the best screenwriters working right now. He's got his own style, and some people don't like it, but I find him to be smart and funny and I'm always blown away by how writes for adults, not teenagers like a lot of American screen writers out there.

Then I found out it was being directed by David Fincher. To my mind, Fincher may just be the best director working in America. After a disastrous debut with Alien3 (which was not his fault at all), he made Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, Panic Room, Zodiac and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. That right there is one pretty interesting body of work.

With the new, full trailer below, The Social Network might be the perfect film to capitalize on the success of ...Button and finally plant him firmly in the A-List where he belongs. It might also nab a Sorkin an Oscar nod. Check it out:

Pretty cool, yeah?
