The Social Network: Best Movie Trailer in Recent Memory

If you weren’t excited about seeing a movie about the founding of Facebook, then odds are you were totally in the dark about the making of this film. Its writer? Aaron Sorkin, responsible for The West Wing, A Few Good Men, and considered one of the best writers of dialogue in the world. Its director? David Fincher, responsible for Fight Club, Zodiac, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Now, we have a trailer so good that it doesn’t need to mention who made it! It sums up the epic nature of how Facebook impacts our lives in the first 45 seconds, with some very familiar images all made haunting to the tune of a women’s choir singing Radiohead’s “Creep.” Then, as the music builds, we get snippets of the film, building in tension, tempo, and volume as the trailer progresses, without truly revealing any major plot turns as so many trailers do. Quite simply, this is how a trailer should be. When I saw Inception this weekend, the theater I was in was quite rowdy… until this trailer came on, and then you could hear a pin drop. The trailer, in HD, is after the jump.

  2. This movie sounds kind of good. Not Jurassic Park good, but watchable good.
