Columbia Pictures has released the first movie poster for director David Fincher’s next film The Social Network, which tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg and how in 2004 during his sophomore year at Harvard he created Facebook. The movie stars Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield, Joe Mazzello and Rashida Jones.
I love the poster design, it’s different from anything we’ve really seen before in a movie poster. For example the title of the film is placed in the corner of the Facebook style sidebar. It’s the tagline that sells this poster, “You don’t get 500 million friends without making a few enemies.”
Eisenberg is playing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg; Timberlake plays Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder who became Facebook’s founding president; and Garfield plays Eduardo Saverin, the Facebook co-founder who fell out with Zuckerberg over money.
