First movie poster for David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’

in Apolitical by

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.

Peter Schorsch is the President of Extensive Enterprises and is the publisher of some of Florida’s most influential new media websites, including,,, and Sunburn, the morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics. SaintPetersBlog has for three years running been ranked by the Washington Post as the best state-based blog in Florida. In addition to his publishing efforts, Peter is a political consultant to several of the state’s largest governmental affairs and public relations firms. Peter lives in St. Petersburg with his wife, Michelle, and their daughter, Ella.
